In Europe, October is, as every year, the month when the rheumatic illnesses are remembered.
This year we have to avoid face-to-face activities. Therefore, we ask people from 4 years on, to send one drawing regarding life with a rheumatologic illness. The 12 winning drawings will be used for our Calendar of 2021
Another activity is a free webinar regarding self-injectable medicines for autoimmune arthritis. These drugs are dispensed by the Hospital Pharmacy.
On September 23rd, our President and the spokesperson of the Hospital Pharmacy of the University Hospital of Coruña will explain how to use those medicines.
Campaigns against school bullying
These campaigns are about eliminating or reducing some factors that trigger isolation and bullying from other students to children that suffer unknown diseases.
School awareness campaign
The challenge of this project is to reach the maximum population in order to present the disease and the problems and limitations that are derived from it, as well as the alternatives that can be proposed for its resolution in the school environment. Therefore, different alternative sessions are proposed in these sessions to solve as many problems that may arise in the classroom of a boy or girl with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), explaining briefly some simple guidelines to follow that will facilitate the work of the teacher and the rest of the people in the educational environment.
