Join PSN in the Walk to Cure Arthritis, April 26

Did you know that arthritis is the #1 cause of disability in the United States, affecting more than 50 million people? Our friends at The Arthritis Foundation are committed to finding a cure for the millions of people who suffer from arthritis pain, including 300,000 children and their families.

Premier Specialty Network is enthusiastic to be one of the local sponsors at this year’s Walk to Cure Arthritis – Southern Illinois on Friday, April 26th! The Walk to Cure Arthritis is the Arthritis Foundation’s annual fundraising 5K event that rallies communities together and raises funds to conquer arthritis for good! Whether you have a family member or loved one who suffers from arthritis or are simply looking for a fun charity event, the Walk to Cure Arthritis is a great way to get moving in support of a worthy cause!

Join PSN and say “yes” to helping create a world where people don’t have to struggle to button their shirt, tie their shoe, pick up their child or grandchild or play with their friends. It’s up to us to help those with arthritis gain access to life-changing information and resources so they can better manage their disease and live full, healthy lives, plus accelerate the path to better treatments and eventually a cure through cutting-edge research.

This years registration for the WALK includes FREE admission into the Miners game. The Walk will start inside the stadium and will go around the concourse, to the outfield gate (not yet on the field). Then it’ll enter the outfield gate and walk around the track and onto home plate. The Walk itself starts at 6:00 p.m. but check-in for the Walk starts at 5:30 p.m.

If you set up a team, like you had last year, everyone who registers for the walk will get into the game for FREE! When you check-in, you’ll get your free ticket with a designated seat to watch the game. Your booth will also be inside the stadium and can be set up until the end of the game.

The baseball stadium also has fireworks every Friday night!!

1st Annual Clinical Rheumatology Symposium

Fortunate circumstances brought together Dr. Robert Jackson from PSN and Dr. Richard Brasington, Professor of Medicine from Washington University School of Medicine, Division of Rheumatology at a recent St Louis Rheumatology Association meeting.

The American College of Rheumatology has an annual scientific meeting where the clinical results from the year are presented. The improved patient outcomes from the research need to filter down to practicing rheumatologist in the field.

It turns out, Dr. Brasington has a weekend home near Tecumseh and Dr. Jackson is familiar with the local resort named Dawt Mill. A plan was made to have a CME symposium of clinical research outcomes in the spring.

Dr. Brasington and two of his former trainees, now faculty, Alfred Kim, M.D., Ph.D. and Jonathan Miner, M.D., Ph.D. plus Anne Winkler, M.D., Ph.D., PSN physician, also joined as presenters at the conference.

Dawt Mill provided a natural backdrop to Dr. Brasington’s combined love of rheumatology and fishing. Having the conference at a natural location brought home the reality of practice life outside of an academic center. After the conference, fishing stories were shared over a nice dinner and entertainment at Dawt Mill.

Dr. Miner’s presentation on the Chikgunya virus was cutting edge, straight from the newspapers, when he relayed that the lab is also working on the Zika virus.

The unanimous conclusion was to have the conference again next year.
