EULAR Statement on events and COVID-19

Update: 27 March 2020

 

EULAR 2020 Frankfurt June 3-6

The COVID-19 pandemic has imposed unprecedented changes in our personal and professional lives. After careful consideration and evaluation of the risks and alternatives, we have decided to cancel the face-to-face annual congress in Frankfurt in June this year. As a scientific medical society, it is our duty to ensure that our medical and health professional participants are available at the forefront of patient care. We are also concerned that bringing our RMD patient delegates into a large meeting venue would be extremely unwise at this time.

We remain committed however to meeting our scientific, educational and training obligations. For this reason, we are delighted to offer a virtual congress experience.
