The RNS is intentionally working on the subject of advocacy to bring hands‑on experiences and multi‑dimensional opportunities to the RNS member. We understand the need for support in the rheumatology field and believe it starts with educating healthcare professionals for the betterment of the patient and their families. Some of the ways we encourage and empower the individual are through mentoring and networking, providing business and practice development tools, and professional leadership development.

Our dedicated advocacy team continues to grow as they work on engaging issues of national and local interest, the creation of position statements on a range of topics related to rheumatology, and actively communicating through the quarterly advocacy newsletter and social channels.
