New to the ACR/ARP Annual Meeting, patients are invited to share their story through the Patient Perspectives Poster Program. Patients affected by rheumatic disease, along with a sponsoring organization such as a nonprofit patient group or pharmaceutical company, are invited to submit adaptations developed with their healthcare team that have improved their health.
Accepted submissions will be published online and in Arthritis & Rheumatology. First authors (patients) will be invited to produce a digital poster and receive complimentary one-day registration to attend and present their poster at the ACR/ARP Annual Meeting.
