Welcome Message 

Dear Colleagues & Friends,

On behalf of the Jordanian Rheumatism Society, it gives me a great pleasure to welcome you to The 3rd International Congress of the Jordanian Rheumatism Society (JRS), which is organized in collaboration with British Society for Rheumatology (BSR) held at Le Meridien Hotel, Amman-Jordan, October 21-23, 2014.

The scientific program of the congress will include Plenary Lectures, multiple Symposia in addition to free-paper presentations, posters, and workshops. Local, regional, and international speakers will contribute to making this meeting a unique learning experience.

Overall, I think this congress will also provide an opportunity for interaction and exchange of information between attendees from different countries.

During the congress, exhibits from major pharmaceutical and medical equipment companies will be available. There will be ample opportunity to meet representatives of these companies for information regarding their products and/or services.

For those of you interested in enjoying more of Jordan than just the congress, numerous social events are planned. These will provide visits within Amman, in addition to trips to famous historic and touristic sites, including Petra, Jerash, the Desert Castles, and the Dead Sea.

We thank our colleagues from the BSR for their active contribution, which will enrich our scientific program, and give us all a chance to develop mutual friendships.

Finally, your attendance is what will make this congress a success, so I hope you will join us for this great educational activity.



Dr. Ala’ Mohammad Al-Heresh, MBBS, BSc, MRCP (UK), FRCP (London)

President of the Jordanian Rheumatism Society and the Congress
