Global Chapters

AWIR - Chair of Global Affairs


A. Silvia Ross,




GLOBAL Chapters are now forming throughout the World

The mission of the Global Chapters remains consistent with the National Organization, and is "to promote the science and practice of rheumatology, foster the advancement and education of women in rheumatology, and advocate access to the highest quality health care and management of patients with rheumatic diseases."

Attendance at Global Chapters is free

If you are unable to attend the AWIR NATIONAL MEETINGS, you are welcome to attend your GLOBAL CHAPTER MEETINGS. Your GLOBAL CHAPTER LEADER (noted below), will follow up with details and schedules for the local meetings.

If there is no Chapter listed in your area, and you are interested and available to form one, please contact DR A. SILVIA ROSS who will review the requirements and assist in starting a chapter in your country. Please provide a list of interested rheumatologists in your email.
