2020 CRS Meeting Schedule

Welcome to the Chicago Rheumatism Society conference information page.  Normally, we will have a number of dinner meetings and a half-day meeting on a Saturday during the year.  However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, we reluctantly came to the decision that hitting the "pause button" this year made sense.  First and foremost, our concern is for the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors and speakers.  Accordingly, the remaining meetings scheduled for 2020 have been postponed until next year.  Once we have final arrangements worked out, that information will be posted on this page.

Thank you for your understanding and support!  We hope to see you for some fantastic talks next spring.
