The American College of Rheumatology Annual Meeting

After spending the weekend at the Joint Decisions Empowerment Summit, I went back across the Golden Gate Bridge to spend a couple of days attending sessions at the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Annual meeting. Here are the sessions I was able to attend this year:

Sunday, November 8th

Patient Advocacy: Patient and Professional Perspectives 

Monday, November 9th

ARHP Debate: Opiods for the Treatment of Chronic Non Cancer Pain...Use or Abuse?

Pregnancy and Infertility in Rheumatic Disease

Men, Masculinity and Rheumatoid Arthritis 

Tuesday, November 10th

Sexual Issues in Rheumatology: Assessment and Intervention    

Pharmacotherapy: What's New In Rheumatology

Prospects for Treating Rheumatid Diseases through Modification in the Microbiome

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer: Conversations and Care  

Although ARC is primarily a conference for rheumatologists and other health care professionals, I learned a lot at all of these sessions. I'll be writing about my experiences for (I'll also share links on this blog!) so keep your eye out for those articles over the next few weeks!
