As Editor-in-Chief, I will dedicate all my efforts to strengthen the ILAR’s mission and to promote greater recognition of the conditions that enable musculoskeletal health in all countries, especially those underdeveloped nations. I believe that Clinical Rheumatology is the ideal platform to do so by disseminating the latest scientific knowledge in the field of rheumatology.
