PLEASE NOTE: PRESENTATIONS ARE GIVEN BY PATIENTS BUT ARE NOT DISEASE-SPECIFIC. EACH PRESENTATION IS GENERALIZED TO COVER AUTOIMMUNE ARTHRITIS AS A CATEGORY. In addition, while we attempted to balance presenters to disease representation, not all those approached were able to participate. We are thrilled with this line-up and feel it will be quite historic and educational!
