Message from OARSI leadership

Important Message Regarding the World Congress

The OARSI leadership team is aware and is concerned that the recent US Executive Order regarding travel restrictions into the United States may impact many of our members and Congress attendees.

The goal of OARSI is to advance knowledge and treatment of osteoarthritis, a pervasive disorder that affects people irrespective of their race, religion or political persuasion. To achieve this, we need to be able to meet, discuss and collaborate with colleagues from around the world. We endeavor to provide such a forum where all are welcome; in that connection we are particularly disturbed by the US Executive Order and its potential effects on the travel plans of our members.

We encourage you to monitor the latest developments, requirements and restrictions regarding travel on the US Department of State website.

If you have specific questions related to the upcoming Congress to be held in Las Vegas on April 27-30 please contact Victoria Converse ( and we will do our best to provide assistance.  We look forward to welcoming you to the World Congress on Osteoarthritis.
