Visibility & Global Affairs Subgroup
The V&GA subgroup has as main aim to increase awareness around the world about EMEUNET as an organization and the projects we do. We try to achieve that goal by:
- Setting up the EMEUNET corner at the EULAR annual meeting – The EMEUNET corner is the ‘headquarter’ for EMEUNET members at the EULAR meetings, where they can meet, get informed and discuss.
- Networking events for EMEUNET members at EULAR and ACR annual meetings –EMEUNET networking events are organized in every city where EULAR/ACR meetings take place. We already organized walking tours, biking tours, boat trips and surf courses and there are many more to come.
- We interact with Young PARE, a working group of the EULAR Standing Committee of PARE aiming to communicate the specific needs of young people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases;
- We maintain contacts with other Young Specialists Organisations in Europe, such as nephrology (YNP), pediatric rheumatology (PReS EMERGE), immunology/allergy (Junior members of EAACI), gastroenterology (Y-ECCO), internal medicine (Young Internists) and oncology (YOC);
