2020 Vision: A New Decade in Rheumatology

As we usher in a new decade brimming with endless discovery, change and exciting possibilities, the Canadian Rheumatology Association and Arthritis Health Professions Association’s Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) returns in 2020 with a vision to bring the rheumatology community together over issues our patients are confronting so that we may work collectively to identify opportunities for solutions.

Join us in Victoria, BC for a week of unparalleled education and networking opportunities centered around a scientific program that will deliver a comprehensive breadth of leading-edge content and feature keynote lectures, debates, interactive workshops, podium and poster presentations delivered by Canadian and internationally recognized experts.
