2021 Annual Scientific Meeting


After careful consideration, CARRA has made the decision to move our next Annual Scientific Meeting from an in-person to an all-virtual meeting. The meeting will be held Friday, April 16 and Saturday, April 17. This two-day meeting will feature engaging plenary speakers and topics relevant to the rheumatology community, networking opportunities with exhibitors and attendees, and the latest updates from CARRA and the Steering Committee. We are also working closely with PRSYM on abstract collaboration for 2021.

In January, Disease Committees will hold virtual Kick-Off meetings. Fellows and Patient/Caregivers will also hold their Orientation sessions. In February and March, CARRA workgroups will hold their virtual meetings. These meetings will be posted on the CARRA website in January.

Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks!
