  • #RheumChat Twitter chat recap

On Thursday, September 17, 2015 we hosted our first #RheumChat on Twitter! The Twitter chat focused on advocating for your health and featured the American College of Rheumatology (@ACRheum) as the co-host.

The hour-long conversation covered topics ranging from how rheumatic diseases impact Americans today to how lawmakers can make a difference for these individuals. Here are a few of the questions that were covered. See the full recap below.

Q1: How do rheumatic diseases impact Americans today?
Q2: What types of symptoms do individuals with rheumatic diseases suffer from?
Q3: How can rheumatologists help individuals with rheumatic diseases?
Q4: What are some of the treatment challenges facing rheumatic disease patients today?
Q5: How can lawmakers in Washington DC make a difference for individuals living with a rheumatic disease?
