One more ill-advised session title


I'll be blogging from the annual meeting of the American College of Rheumatology next week, and for the most part, their session titles are depressingly matter-of-fact. "Translating Rheumoatoid Arthritis Treatment Guidelines into Quality Measures" and that sort of thing.

Some of them are intimidatingly specific: "Elevated Production of Interleukin 1β (IL-1β) and Tumor Necrosis Factor α (TNF-α) by Perpheral Blood Mononuclear Cells (PBMC) is Associated With Increased Hip Fracture Risk in Elders: The Framingham Osteoporosis Study."

But only this one caught my eye for sheer weirdness of imagery: "Preserving the Beans and Other Points in the Evaluation and Management of Chronic Kidney Disease." Yum.
