RheumNow ACR Week in Review: ACR Wrap-Up (10.26.18)

This past week in Chicago gave us a plethora of new and eye-opening research, people, KOLs, exhibits, sessions, guidelines, posters and a never-ending supply of coffee served in small paper cups.  ACR 2018 highlights for me included:

ACR8.RheumNow.com – featuring over 1000 new content pieces – tweets, videos, panel discussions, convention and Chicago pics, quotes from notable teachers. Find your info, your way – navigate by header boxes (for RA, PsA, AS, Gout, OP), click on reports by Day (D1, D2, etc), click on category buttons (RA, PsA, gout, etc) or on the video, news buttons or use the seach field.  My favorites about this site include the RheumNow Roundtable panel discussions (especially the PsA, Gout and Spondylitis Panels), Videos by Dr. Dao on Great Debate, Dr. Tate on Exhibitor smack-down, Dr. Sam Whittle on SCOT trial and Dr. David Liew on irAE with Checkpoint inhibitors.  Lastly checkout the talking head audio commentaries found on the RA, PsA, AS, Gout and OP pages of the websites – 30 second morsels of expert commentary related to an abstract our Topic Editors found interesting.
