A Podcast Series

Keeping up to date in rheumatology typically involves attending—either in-person or virtually—the annual meeting of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR). At the 2021 ACR Convergence meeting, more than 1000 abstracts were presented, as well as plenary sessions, study groups, and special lectures. To distill the key takeaways from this year’s meeting, 2 leaders in rheumatology provide their perspectives in 2 15-minute podcasts. Listen in as they discuss the most important information presented at ACR 2021—including reversal of subclinical arthritis, dietary measures to prevent autoimmune disease, safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccine in immunosuppressed adults with autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular risk of hydroxychloroquine, mortality in patients with suboptimally treated gout, and safety of JAK inhibitors—and how it may impact your patients’ care.
