World Arthritis Day, referred to as WAD, is a global awareness day held every year on 12 October. WAD aims to help raise awareness in all audiences across the world of the existence and impact of rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases, often referred to as RMDs. The debilitating effects of these diseases, of which more than 200 exist, are little known; their impact, however, is largely – and silently – felt.
EULAR (The European Alliance of Associations for Rheumatology) has launched the Edgar Stene Prize competition 2022, calling EULAR PARE Member Organisations to open the competition at national level, to encourage persons living with Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Diseases (RMDs) to participate and write about their personal experience on the topic “How treating my RMD has influenced my hopes for the future”.
Who can apply: EULAR PARE Member Organisations invite people living with RMDs (minimum age of 18 years) in their respective countries to participate in the competition by writing and submitting an essay on the topic of the year. Essays may be written in any national language and should not exceed two typewritten pages.
