Global Rheumatology Summit

Welcome to the Global Summit Submission Site for the ACR Convergence 2023!

The ACR Global Summit will provide a platform to highlight the global burden of rheumatologic diseases, the challenges and success of different health systems and international rheumatology professionals. It will continue to create a space to bring rheumatologists and health professionals together from different parts of the word to talk about topics that are of mutual relevance and concern.

The 2023 program will continue to showcase innovative rheumatology education, training, research, and partnerships around the world. The Summit will address the need to develop clinical and research capacity in low-resource settings, and to better understand how diverse geographies, ethnic, genetic and environmental variability, or health system disparities uniquely influence epidemiology and outcomes of rheumatologic and musculoskeletal diseases.

It will feature a Global Meet the Experts session on RA and a spotlight on global researchers. The summit will highlight sustainable health programs, examples of international to local education and explore global drug development-how rheumatology drugs are being developed, tested, and marketed around the world and the success and failures in terms of delivery of important medications to under resourced areas. The target audience is rheumatologists, general practitioners, health professionals who care for patients with rheumatic disease, and those engaged in research, education, and advocacy.

Be part of the Global Rheumatology Summit! The summit will include two sessions built by learners’ participation. Learners are invited to submit a case on Rheumatoid Arthritis and/or an example of Sustainable Rheumatology Health programs around the world.
