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.

On September 28, more than 80 #Act4Arthritis advocates met virtually with over 110 legislative offices to encourage support for the modernization of prior authorization and transparency for pharmacy benefit managers. Advocates had meaningful discussions on providing better access to care and were able to build relationships with Members of Congress and their staffs.
