Welcome to the Chicago Rheumatism Society

The Chicago Rheumatism Society is dedicated to advancing the educational and professional interest of rheumatologists, as well as their patients.  CRS strives to be a mechanism in which rheumatologists can discuss medical issues and learn about diseases and treatment options.  

The CRS was established in 1947.  Today, the organization is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving the needs of nearly 300 rheumatologists and other interested professionals.
