The ACR is accepting applications for mini curriculums, which are educational activities or curriculums to enhance the ACR Core Curriculum Outline.
Advocates for Arthritis is an annual event that brings together rheumatology professionals and patients to advocate on behalf of the rheumatology community. During the event, attendees will hear from top representatives from key legislative and regulatory agencies and meet with their members of Congress to discuss current issues affecting the rheumatology community. Participating in Advocates for Arthritis is a great way for ACR and ARP members to engage in the legislative process and increase awareness of rheumatology on Capitol Hill.
This year’s event will take place on September 14 - 15. The ACR is committed to creating safe and effective activities for rheumatology advocates. While this event is usually held in Washington, D.C., the 2020 Advocates for Arthritis event will be an all-virtual experience!
The annual Advocacy 101 program will be held virtually September 13, ahead of the Advocates for Arthritis event. This interactive course provides fellows in training, ARP members, and rheumatology program directors the opportunity to learn to become effective advocates for rheumatology issues and connect with like-minded individuals.
The 2020 application period for Advocates for Arthritis and Advocacy 101 has closed.
