The Galician Rheumatology League (LRG)
In December 2016 we celebrated a Xmas “solidary toast” with members of our League. Hereby a picture of the one in A Coruña
During the act in Coruña we officially started a campaign during which we will sell for 5 euros chocolates with bone shape “for your bones” (sold on http://por-tus-huesos.webnode.es/)
These products finance the health programs of our entity, like: psychological care, occupational therapy and information campaigns throughout Galicia.
Our League was invited for several interviews on television, radio and newspapers, to talk about our activities, about rheumatological and musculoskeletal illnesses and their impact in society.
In January 2 members participated in Budapest in a 2days workshop about biologicals and biosimilars – new pharmacological treatments. This activity was organized by the Agora Platform of Organizations for people with RMDs from the South of Europe. We will organize a workshop about this important item for people living in our country.
In Santiago de Compostela, the capital of our autonomous region, we had a stand during 2 days where we informed about RMDs. The success amongst the audience was so overwhelming, that the local authorities proposed us to open a Delegation in this city.
Taking account of the growing prevalence of RMDs in children, we developed for February a workshop “little superheroes” for parents and children affected by these illnesses.
In February we will assist in Lisbon, Portugal at the Annual Conference of PARE, patients Department of EULAR, European League Against Rheumatism.
