While attending the ACR Annual Scientific Meeting in Boston, ACR member Ignacio Garcia-De La Torre, MD, visited the ACR Research and Education booth to purchase the latest Rodnan commemorative gout print, A Fisher-King.
By making his purchase on site, Dr. Garcia-De La Torre was entered into—and won—a drawing to be the individual who will select the Rodnan print that will be released by the REF in honor of the 2008 annual meeting.
Dr. Garcia De-La Torre, a rheumatologist with the University of Guadalajara in Mexico, was pleased have the opportunity to select the next print. “I consider them a ‘classic’ reproduction of the disease in a time when things were so different,” he says, noting that he displays his prints in his office. A Fisher-King is the third Rodnan print he has purchased.
Each year the REF releases a new print in honor of the ACR/ARHP Annual Scientific Meeting. Proceeds from the sale of each print help fund REF training, education, and research programs.
