Congratulations to Trainees Selected to Present at 2017 Annual Meeting

Six trainees will give oral presentations and twenty-four others will explain their abstracts from posters at the 2017 GRAPPA Annual Meeting and Trainee Symposium in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The abstract submissions came from thirteen countries: Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, China, Ireland, Italy, Israel, The Netherlands, Romania, Turkey, the UK, and the USA while 29 universities and research institutions were represented. Topics range from genomics to treat-to target to composite measures. The work of both dermatology and rheumatology trainees and fellows was selected.
 
The scope, quantity, and quality of this year’s abstract submissions surpassed all previous years, according to the eight-person committee of evaluators. GRAPPA started the abstract submission/Trainee Symposium program in 2008 and it has grown every year.
 
Christopher Ritchlin, MD, MPH and Prof. Wolf-Henning Boehncke (Switzerland) will present the trainees with recognition certificates at the GRAPPA 2017 Annual Meeting Awards Dinner on Friday night, July 14.
