In this occasion valuable abstracts will be presented by young and senior Rheumatologists from Europe and around the World and they will certainly help to advance the field of Pediatric Rheumatology both in basic science and in clinical practice.
As stated in the Welcome Letter by the President of PReS, Berent J. Prakken, "PReS and EULAR have been natural partners through years, and for a good reason: our patients also need the best possible care after their 18th birthday". To achieve their common objective, pediatric and adult rheumatologists are strong allies. Because of the importance of this alliance, this year EULAR and the PReS have decided to build a truly integrated programme: ENCA (European Network for Children with Arthritis) and PARE (People with Arthritis / Rheumatism in Europe) as well as Young PARE, Emeunet (EMerging EUlar NETwork) and Emerge (EMErging RheumatoloGists and rEsearchers) and scientists and health professionals from both EULAR and PRES will all meet and work together to make a difference to both adult and young patients.
