Simple Tasks is a public awareness campaign by the American College of Rheumatology that strives to increase awareness of rheumatic diseases and the work of rheumatologists, as well as implement related public policy in the U.S.
Just as oncologists treat cancer and cardiologists care for the heart, rheumatologists are the specialists trained to diagnose and treat rheumatic diseases. Rheumatologists treat over 100 different forms of rheumatic diseases.
Join the rheumatologist and rheumatology health professional members of the American College of Rheumatology and Americans in fighting the devastating effects of rheumatic diseases. There are many ways to get involved.
The Simple Tasks video series highlights the experiences of people with rheumatic diseases and the rheumatologists who treat those diseases. You’ll find videos of patients talking about how care under a rheumatologist improved their quality of life and videos of rheumatologists and rheumatology health care professionals addressing the problems facing rheumatology and discussing how elevating the importance of rheumatology in the public sphere will benefit patients.
