On 4-5 May in Italy the Italian Society of Rheumatologists (SIR) in collaboration with ANMAR started the national campaign #ReumaDays 2019 - SIR meets the citizens in 11 cities (Torino, Genova, Roma, Napoli, Catania, Cosenza, Bari, Ferrara, Mantova, Trento, Varese - arranged by date). In each event, special info points were installed, where rheumatologists met citizens, distributing booklets. There was the possibility to have an interview with a doctor and there were practical demonstrations of diagnostic tests.

The campaign will end on June 6th, just a week before the next EULAR Congress.

ANMAR will take part at the campaign in all the cities with volunteers coming from the respective Regional association federated, presenting its own educational material and speaking with the citizens.

Furthermore in these days the ANMAR survey on the effects of RMDs on workability and work in Italy was opened, updating data collected in Fit for Work Italy. A special questionnaire has been delivered on the ANMAR website and everyone is called to answer it.

ANMAR and its Regional associations are supporting the national campaign on the women health, taking part in several events with speeches and volunteers.

In Turin on the end of June will begin a Pet therapy program for children with JIA. It is totally free. It is a pilot project with the aim to calibrate activities and find new rehabilitation programs to perform with the help of dogs and cats.

ANMAR, side by side with ANAP - a national association of patients with Psoriasis, Psoriatic Arthritis and other chronic dermatological diseases, and Fondazione Corazza a foundation specifically oriented to Psoriasis - will take part to the press Conference presenting the 24th World Dermatology Congress. We think it is a best practice of networking with other patients associations with analogue targets.

We are preparing the Italian conference of ANMAR Young, our youth group. It will be held just a week before the EULAR congress ANMAR will be at the EULAR congress in Madrid presenting a poster on Diet and Rheumatic diseases. ANMAR is now programming the Patients Session during the next SIR (Italian Society of Rheumatologists) Congress which will be held in November.
