Data from the COVID-19 Global Rheumatology Alliance Physician-Reported Registry

Greetings #RheumJC friends!

Our next journal club will be Thursday, June 25th at 9pm Eastern Time / 8pm Central Time (click here to find this in your local time zone).

We’re going to be discussing the recently published article from The COVID–19 Global Rheumatology Alliance in Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases: Characteristics associated with hospitalisation for COVID–19 in people with rheumatic disease: data from the COVID–19 Global Rheumatology Alliance physician-reported registry.

Healio Rheumatology has been kind enough to provide a summary of the article, which includes an interview with first author Dr. Gianfrancesco: Steroid use increases COVID–19 hospitalization risk for patients with rheumatic diseases.

Hope all of you can make it! We’re looking forward to the discussion!
