The ACR is accepting applications for mini curriculums, which are educational activities or curriculums to enhance the ACR Core Curriculum Outline.
Through the Patient Perspectives Program, patients affected by rheumatic disease, along with a sponsoring organization such as a nonprofit patient group, are invited to submit their stories to share at ACR Convergence 2020.
Accepted submissions will be published online and in Arthritis & Rheumatology. First authors (patients) will receive complimentary registration to ACR Convergence 2020 to present their posters. New in 2020, select submissions will be featured in an oral session where patient authors will have 10-15 minutes to present. All other submissions will be featured as digital posters on November 8 in the Poster Hall through “rapid-fire” poster presentations.
