Thank you for reading the ORA Fall 2020 newsletter. Are you suffering from COVID-19 news fatigue? Me too. So we’ve moved away from that and are focusing more on rheumatology specific issues.
We have added updates to our website including a new Info Hub section located under the News tab. This will have links to external resources of interest to you such as a video on biosimilars and a patient app. We will be adding more items so keep an eye on that section.
We are also updating the EAP forms as available medications and criteria seem to be constantly changing. Furthermore there is a new Biosimilar Fact Sheet on our website to help you keep track of the available biosimilars and applicable Limited Use codes.
On a personal note I hope all of you have stayed healthy both physically and mentally. The past six months have been draining. I have tried to remain physically and mentally active and have discovered new hobbies and interests such as walking around playing Pokemon Go with my kids, learning to break dance (I’m a toprock specialist, too old for downrock apparently), and learning to ride a unicycle (sort of).
How have you been coping the past while? If you wish to share or are interested in joining the Communications Committee, let us know!
