Program Description

Event Details

When your kidneys do not work the way that they should, it can lead to gout, a form of arthritis characterized by severe pain, redness, and tenderness in joints.  Pain and inflammation occur when too much uric acid crystallizes and deposits in the joints.

One out of 10 people with chronic kidney disease have gout, and an even higher percentage of people with gout have kidney disease.  Since kidney disease and gout are closely related, protecting your kidney function is one way to reduce symptoms of gout.

Join us for a high-level overview of kidney disease and gout presented in collaboration with Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center of Livingston. The goals of this community presentation are for audience members to understand modifiable risk factors for developing these conditions and appropriate management. The presentation will outline lifestyle modifications and healthy habits with an emphasis on preventative care.

Presenter Lucio Volino, PharmD, is a clinical pharmacist for the Retail Network at Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center and the Clinical Associate Professor, Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy, at Rutgers University.

The program is open to all but registration is required.
