This virtual two-day event featured 23 educational and empowering sessions and over 50 autoimmune experts including physicians, nurses, policy experts and of course, patient advocates.

We tackled the most pressing topics that impact patients and caregivers living with autoimmune conditions. From tips and tricks for managing multiple specialists to clinical trials, health equity, access, complementary medicine, pregnancy and autoimmunity and beyond — the Summit recordings are a valuable resource for patients, caregivers, and stakeholders in the autoimmune community.

Summit goals for attendees were three-fold:

  • Discover tips for managing your autoimmune disease
  • Learn about the latest research in autoimmune disease and gain an increased understanding of future treatments
  • Connect with autoimmune patients and caregivers and build your autoimmune family
