to the convention center.
Today was pretty much a whirlwind. I am glad that I got to the convention center early enough to check out the Poster Hall before the Exhibit Hall opened. The Poster Hall is a huge room filled with giant posters that display abstracts of the latest research and findings. It is truly amazing to see how much rheumatology research is being done and it's overwhelming to try to take even just some of it in. I found a few interesting posters related to RA -- a couple of interesting ones pertaining to remission criteria in RA, one looking at evaluating disease activity during pregnancy and one looking for correlations between weather and RA symptoms. That's about as far as I got before I looked up and saw my own rheumatologist standing in the hall ahead of me! It was great to connect with both him and another doctor from that office in a non-clinical setting.
