The Association Of Women in Rheumatology advocates for access to the highest quality health care and management of patients with Rheumatic diseases. We believe in creating a strong network of women advocates that will support AWIR policy priorities at both the state and federal level.

Our advocates are working on the frontline of health care and have firsthand knowledge of the struggles our patients endure. To help provide support for our advocates we have devices the tools and resources necessary to actively engage legislators and regulators around the country.

Advocacy support is available to help with issues affecting Health Сare Providers and Patients.
