Program Highlights

ACR Convergence Community Hubs

During ACR Convergence, participants will have the opportunity to access Community Hubs – a unique feature that allows attendees to engage with experts and connect with peers who share the same research or clinical interests. Each hub will be co-hosted by leaders in the field and include a mix of informal education and networking opportunities, including Study Groups and conversations with the ACR Convergence Twitter Ambassadors. Below is a list of hubs, including each hub’s co-hosts and Twitter Ambassadors, as well as links to each hub’s scheduled programming.

Learn more about the all-new Community Hubs with a video walk-through of the hubs, as well as related hub programming.
