State-of-the-Art Clinical Symposium Update

In 2021, the ACR wants to continue providing unparalleled education to rheumatology professionals across the globe in the safest way possible.

With that in mind, we have made the decision to hold the State-of-the-Art Clinical Symposium (SOTA) virtually in 2021.

The SOTA 2021 organizers and ACR staff want to extend our great appreciation for your understanding regarding the shift to a virtual meeting in 2021.

At this clinical symposium key opinion leaders will deliver a range of content in areas such as therapeutic developments, recent research findings, and scientific advances, in an environment conducive to dialogue and networking.
