The aim of the Newsletter Sub-Committee is to keep our community updated on activities and latest news of EMUNET, as well as any upcoming events, new projects and other information that could be considered useful to young rheumatologists and researchers in the field.

EMEUNEWS newsletters are released monthly on the EMEUNET website. Recurring themes include the ‘Press Review and Journal Club’, and the EULAR/ ACR ‘Do Not Miss’ and ‘Highlights’ congress issues. The members of the Newsletter Sub-Committee are responsible for the coordination of these newsletters, while all Working Group members contribute to their contents.

Over the years, the newsletters have become an important activity of EMEUNET, as they are part of the “voice” of EMEUNET, help promote its visibility and are our means to engage the community.
