Spondylitis Association of America Announces Virtual Event to Empower Community Living With Chronic Disease

6th Annual Global Spondyloarthritis Summit

The Spondylitis Association of America (SAA) is proud to announce its 6th Annual Global Spondyloarthritis Summit, a groundbreaking virtual program dedicated to educating and empowering individuals living with Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) and other related spondyloarthritis (SpA) diseases. The summit takes place on May 3-4, 2024, offering a comprehensive platform for patients, caregivers, and advocates to come together and advance their understanding of this chronic disease.

AS is a lifelong condition affecting more than 3.2 million Americans, characterized by inflammation primarily in the spine and sacroiliac joints. The Global SpA Summit is designed to provide invaluable insights into the latest treatment guidelines, cutting-edge research developments, and effective coping mechanisms essential for managing the disease.

Now in its sixth year, attendees can look forward to participating in engaging sessions led by renowned rheumatology experts and others in related health care fields, who will delve into topics such as:

  • Treatment and Research Advances in Spondyloarthritis
  • Minimizing Fatigue and Strain, Conserving Energy, and Hacks for Daily Living Activities
  • Precision Medicine: The Potential of Tailored Treatments for SpA
  • The Role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Future SpA Treatments and Diagnosis

Whether an individual is newly diagnosed or has been living with the disease for years, the Summit is an opportunity for participants to interact directly with experts through live Q&A sessions, breakout discussions, and networking forums, fostering a collaborative environment for knowledge exchange and support.

This year’s Summit is made possible through the generous support of industry partners, including UCB and AbbVie. “Their commitment to advancing AS education and research underscores the importance of collaborative efforts in enhancing outcomes and quality of life for individuals affected by AS,” says SAA CEO Cassie Shafer.
