Next Scleroderma Manitoba AGM and Support Group Meeting:

Saturday, September 25th, 2021 | 10:30 am CDT

Topic: Patient Experiences and Questions

Following a brief Annual General Metting, we will hear some scleroderma patient stories, and then the group will have the opportunity to ask questions and share their own experiences and knowledge with each other.

Caregivers, partners, friends, family members and supporters are all welcome to attend this virtual meeting.

We encourage you to attend the AGM. It will provide an insight into the past years’ activities of Scleroderma Manitoba, and our plans for the future.

Register for the support group here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing instructions about joining the meeting.

A diagnosis of scleroderma is scary. That’s why it’s so very important to learn as much as you can and connect with others who understand what you are going through.

Scleroderma Manitoba hosts support groups for scleroderma patients and their families and supporters. Whether newly diagnosed, or have been living with scleroderma for some time, it is extremely helpful to get to know others who are living with the disease, ask questions, share concerns, ideas, learn some tips, and support each other.

We are now holding online support groups due to Covid-19.
