Welcome to the Pennsylvania Rheumatology Society
The Pennsylvania Rheumatology Society (PRS) was established in 1987 to advance the knowledge of rheumatology and to foster the dissemination of this knowledge through educational endeavors and cooperation with other local and national societies of Rheumatology.
The PRS has been working over the past thirty years to support the interests of rheumatologists and their patients in the state. In recent years, we have actively supported the interests of rheumatology through participation in the Specialty Leadership Cabinet (SLC) of the PA Medical Society. Representatives of our organization also sit on the Carrier Advisory Committee (CAC) of Novitas, the PA Medicare contractor as well as strive to keep the medical directors of other major statewide insurers informed on rheumatic disease issues.
