Dear Colleagues,

Arthritis and related autoimmune conditions currently affect nearly 4.6 million Canadians and have an estimated economic burden of $33 billion annually. As an orthopedic surgeon, I know that for those living with arthritis, physical activity can offer a multitude of benefits including increased mobility and reduced pain and stiffness. Practicing yoga is a great example of how to stay active and reinforce these positive benefits.

The Power of Movement is Canada's largest yoga fundraiser, raising funds for UHN's Arthritis Research Foundation to support  the Arthritis & Autoimmunity Research Centre led by Dr. Eleanor Fish. This year I am the honorary team captain for Team UHN and invite you to join me on Sunday March 3rd to help beat arthritis. You can register with my team at: http://tinyurl.com/POM13UHN and can participate in a location nearest to you throughout the GTA (a full list of locations is available online.)  

This is a great chance to show your best downward dog and help one of our Foundations.  I hope you will consider joining the movement with me.
