Ready for the Big #REVEAL this 2020?!

The Big #REVEAL is happening during the 26th PRA Annual Meeting from February 20-22, 2020. Themed “REVEAL” or Rheumatology EVidence, Excellence And Leadership, this year the convention is coming back to Metro Manila and will be held at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel, Mandaluyong.

Registration channels for physicians had been opened since December 2019 through here.

We stand against smoking…

You might wonder why we, rheumatologists, are appealing to you to please support the proposal to increase tobacco tax. It is because we know that smoking increases the risk for development for lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and Buerger’s disease which afflict patients under our care. 

Do you need help?


Whether it be for yourself or someone you know, consulting the nearest rheumatologist is easier with our online directory of members. They are grouped by area/ province of practice.

Interact with our SIGs!

Whether it be the common rheumatic conditions (like gout, lupus, or osteoarthritis), rheumatic concerns (musculoskeletal imaging, genetics, pediatric rheum, or geriatric rheum) or the uncommon rheumatologic diseases (like rheum arthritis, spondyloarthritis, scleroderma/ other CTDs, etc.), there’s a PRA Special Interest Group for that. They take the lead for the Association’s work on continuing professional development, research and advocacy in collaboration with the PRA committees.
