ACR Convergence 2020, the world’s premier virtual rheumatology experience, is happening online, November 5-9.

Get ready for an all-encompassing, all-virtual experience designed for the global rheumatology community. Get ready for ACR Convergence 2020.

We’ve given the ACR’s annual meeting a new name and a fresh look, and reimagined #ACR20 without losing the elements you care about most: stellar rheumatology education and outstanding networking opportunities.

We will be sharing abstracts details in the coming weeks and months, and we promise to keep you fully informed.

Each year, the annual meeting draws thousands of abstracts as an important part of its program.
