Doing what I do for a living, conventions are the only way to get my CEUs but I really don’t like to have to drive/fly to any place because of the discomfort I get from sitting for too long. Not to mention having to sit and listen to speakers for hours on end. How great will it be to sit in the comfort of my home and attend this awesome event? It will be SUPER FANTASTIC!
So…. “what is this virtual convention about?” I’m glad you asked.
World Autoimmune Arthritis Day (WAAD) is an annual 47-hour event where nonprofits, advocates, and experts from around the world unite in order to provide educational and awareness information to patients, their supporters, and the general public. This years event aims to triple in size from 2012, adding Nonprofit Booths, Vendors, a Raffle and a special feature: A Day in the Life with Autoimmune Arthritis (an Apple/Android app and Exhibit Booth). It is an interactive, LIVE, Virtual Convention that you can attend for FREE! There are currently 36 Nonprofits who will be coming together to participate in this event! From the Arthritis Foundation US, South Africa, New Zealand and Crete to EULAR and even the US National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), there will be 100s of resources at your fingertips.
