Our amazing EMEUNET Country Liaisons have been working tirelessly to promote the network and its activities in their respective countries. In this section, we want to give a shout-out to some of their awesome activities in promoting EMEUNET and engaging with young rheumatologists in their regions. We are truly grateful to all of our Country Liaisons for their dedication and hard work in advancing the network’s mission!
