ACR Convergence 2020, the world’s premier virtual rheumatology experience, is happening online, November 5 – 9. The fully virtual meeting is where rheumatology can collaborate, celebrate, innovate, and learn.

During ACR Convergence, participants will have the opportunity to access Community Hubs – a unique feature that allows attendees to engage with experts and connect with peers who share the same research or clinical interests. Each hub will be co-hosted by leaders in the field and include a mix of informal education and networking opportunities, including Study Groups and conversations with the ACR Convergence Twitter Ambassadors. Below is a list of hubs, including each hub’s co-hosts and Twitter Ambassadors, as well as links to each hub’s scheduled programming.
