Debriefs and Poster Tours extend live programming into February

Even though ACR Convergence 2021 has officially ended, the virtual meeting platform continues to provide live learning opportunities.

From December 10, 2021, through February 11, 2022, the site will be updated nearly every Friday with new Debriefs and Poster Tours. A new Poster Tour will go live at 12 p.m. ET, followed by a new Debrief at 1 p.m. ET. Each of these extended programming opportunities will deliver curated scientific content from experts in rheumatology in an easily accessible, interactive format.

Poster Tours provide a virtual overview of poster content on a given disease category, with a new topic addressed each week, including scleroderma, myositis, vasculitis, and more. An expert host will review novel and recent developments from select poster abstracts presented during ACR Convergence in each subject area.

In the Debrief sessions, a featured speaker will summarize the groundbreaking science presented during ACR Convergence in a specific disease category. Each Debrief will conclude with a 20-minute moderated question-and-answer period.

Recordings will be available within 24 hours of each live session for on-demand viewing by meeting participants until March 11, 2022.
