Q2. What are your concerns about healthcare reform?
Q3. What are rheumatologists doing to advocate for their patients?
Q4. What are some recent patient advocacy efforts we can learn from?
Q5. What can lawmakers do to help rheum patients?
Q6. How can rheum patients make sure their voices are heard by lawmakers on these issues?
Q7. What tools are available for individuals looking to become advocates?
