We RA bloggers received exciting sneak peeks of a brand neutral program launching June 19 (that's tomorrow!), designed to educate our community in several aspects of managing our disease.

Look for his RethinkRA Events here:

We were treated to an insightful healthy cooking demonstration for lunch and were bowled over! The delicious, anti-inflammatory, lunchtime demo that we got to enjoy eating was a super fun highlight of the summit.

One wonderful aspect of the trip to NYC was the opportunity to meet other RA advocates and bloggers with whom I had communicated via Twitter, Facebook, and social media, as well as several faces new to me.
I look forward to continuing the conversation with both the advocates and pharma representatives I met at the RA Blogger Summit. The organizers at Pfizer were all very generous and eager to listen. They also took care of our travel, which would have been prohibitive for many of us to participate otherwise. Thanks to the wonderful team at Pfizer, Inc.!
Opening the doors of communication between Rheumatoid patients and those who work to make our lives better seems, to me, a great goal. Special thanks also to Seamus Mullen for opening up and sharing his tips and stories about his life with RA!
