In addition, he has come to be recognized as a regional expert in the diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis, serving on the Osteoporosis Coalition for the New Jersey Department of Health and the lead author for a NJDOH publication on osteoporosis. In addition, Dr. Adelizzi was the founder and director for many years of one of the first self-help group for osteoporosis in the country, the New Jersey Osteoporosis Society.

Since 1982, he has participated in numerous drug trials, majority of which are on NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).

Dr. Adelizzi sees himself as a very driven person, but he believes it was mostly the women in his life: his mother and wives (he married and was widowered twice) who made his profession a huge success. He could not have made it without their loving support. His mother, in particular, always believed he was going to be an excellent physician since he was five.
Dr. Adelizzi defines several highlights as his greatest professional achievements. One involves having been a well sought-after lecturer on rheumatology in the national and international arena. Additionally, he has been a consultant for numerous pharmaceutical companies over the years, which has resulted to being frequently invited in meetings and participating in clinical research studies. He has likewise published 41 medical articles, most of which were authored primarily by him. Dr. Adelizzi has often been interviewed on television for his expertise in practice and his experience in 30 clinical studies. In the coming years, he wishes to be able to increase his involvement in charity work by volunteering as a teacher.
