For the first time in Europe, on the event of World Osteoarthritis Day, the Osteoarthritis Foundation and the agency MCI Brussels, with the support of visit.brussels, will be organising intergenerational events against osteoarthritis on 14 and 15 September 2019 at SQUARE. The organisers will be able to count on the support of the President of the French League Against Rheumatism (AFLAR).
For two – and free- of-charge! – days, specialists and researchers will give conferences that are opened to all. There will be veterinarians available to domestic pets and their owners, while introductory sessions to disciplines such as Tai Chi, Nordic walking and yoga will be organised. Dogs and their owners will also be invited to go jogging together in order to demonstrate that their health is interconnected.
Meanwhile, event patrons, table tennis champion Jean-Michel Saive and his brother, will put on a breath- taking show and will participate in a debate on sport and osteoarthritis led by Philippe Antoine, RTBF sports journalist.
