October 26, 2013 marked a big day in AI history as we were honored to attend the prestigious 2013 American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Annual Meeting. Arthritis Introspective was one of only two patient-led, patient-driven organizations to be represented in the exhibition area. The Rheumatoid Patient Foundation (RPF) paved the way for AI to participate in the event, led by Kelly Young, the first independent patient advocate to attend in 2009.
