The first week in November, the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation (RPF) will exhibit at the annual Scientific Meeting of the American College of Rheumatology. The meeting is one of the largest of its kind with about fifteen thousand medical professionals attending from around the world. There are also thousands of pharmaceutical industry, biotechnology, marketing, and research personnel.
This exhibit is a unique opportunity for our organization! We will have an opportunity to demonstrate The Face of Rheumatoid Disease to those who diagnose the disease, to those who create the treatments, and to others who market products to us. We have several effective ways we plan to present the patient viewpoint.
However, the most thrilling is an RA VIDEO PROJECT.
We believe that this project will help those who have not experienced RA to better appreciate what RA patients experience in living with the disease. We can convey a more complete picture of the disease and of the brave struggle many people have to continue to pursue their lives while fighting RA. Patients’ lives are much more than can be seen in a clinical setting – and we will show that.
You can participate in the RA VIDEO PROJECT.
