Save the Date – Childhood Arthritis & Beyond. April 23-26, 2019

Over the recent years, the members of our community have dramatically increased our knowledge and understanding of childhood arthritis – from starting to decipher the biology of childhood arthritis to defining and measuring risks and outcomes in clinical science, from beginning to understand the personal burden to exploring the societal impact of arthritis and opportunities for policy change. International partnerships for childhood arthritis – UCAN and many others- have been established and flourish around the world.

We are inviting the members of the childhood arthritis community to join us next year in April in beautiful Lake Louise in the Canadian Rocky Mountains to share your childhood arthritis discoveries in talks and posters with other researchers, inspire the future generation of arthritis researchers, educators and clinicians, connect with patients and families from different countries, engage with policy makers and leaders and enjoy spring skiing, barn line dancing, a fun-and-dance filled dinner party and the exchange with your colleagues in one of Canada’s most magical places. The conference will take place at the Fairmont Lake Louise Hotel and Conference Centre starting Tuesday evening April 23 and ending Friday at noon April 26 .
