The 15th EULAR Autumn Conference for PARE 2012 took place in Zurich Switzerland from 2-4 November 2012 and AGORA was represented by the secretariat Ms Sandra Canadelo. The theme this year, was “Move to improve” exploring the benefits of physical activity for people with RMDs.
There were presentations on the activities and projects of EULAR and a chance was given to all delegates to visit the EULAR HOUSE and the premises of Swiss Rheuma liga. On Saturday an introduction to the EULAR call to action on physical activity was followed by some workshops on how to launch the EULAR call to action successfully, and a presentation on the ways to change individual behaviour and become active.
On Sunday there was an inspirational speaker by an athlete with RA who shared her experience in living with a Rheumatic disease but also managing to keep herself physically active. Also the main focus of the day was how to organize fundraising activities and campaigns.
