A rheumatology change maker is anyone in the field of rheumatology working to start or support an initiative or intervention, bring a program or idea to reality, or improve the quality of life of a group or community: A true leader, an inspired visionary, or front-line professional willing to do whatever it takes to keep things going. Change makers in rheumatology may work with or for an organization or initiative. Others start movements or organize people on their own. Whatever they do, they think of rheumatology before themselves. They likely do not think that what they do is special or praiseworthy; they are filling a gap that they see.
The ACR and ARP want to recognize these heroes of rheumatology through the new Rheumatology Change Maker program. You can nominate a peer, colleague, mentor, or anyone in the field of rheumatology who has gone above and beyond what is expected. Rheumatology change makers will be recognized on rheumatology.org and social media.
If you have identified someone as a rheumatology change maker, please complete the nomination form. If you have questions please contact Member Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
