In this video, occupational therapist, Cynthia Carr talks about how her awareness of vasculitis began with her husband's diagnosis of GPA - Wegeners Disease. This past July, Cynthia gave a presentation at the Vasculitis Symposium in Philadelphia focusing on ways that vasculitis patients need to care for themselves. She stresses the emotional, physical, and mental challenges that demand holistic and clinical solutions for patients.
Cynthia also talks about the benefits for occupational therapy for vasculitis patients because they need to learn how to those things that give enjoyment, but are limited by pain or other issues brought on by vasculitis.
