About the National Conference

Did you know that the actual per person cost of hosting the conference is more than $700? We would like to thank our corporate sponsors and donors for helping to reduce the cost for participants.

The Annual National Patient Education Conference offers educational and networking opportunities for people living with scleroderma, their caregivers, family members and friends. We also offer a juvenile program at the conference that is open to juvenile patients, their siblings or even the child of an adult patient.

Workshops, panel discussions and other educational sessions are led by leading scleroderma researchers and healthcare professionals. Whether you are newly diagnosed or have had scleroderma for many years, the National Conference is a great way to learn about the disease and become connected with others that are dealing with scleroderma.

With more than 60 workshops, dozens of exhibitors and the chance to meet other patients and caregivers, the weekend's activities offer an excellent opportunity for attendees.

 

Conference Scholarship Program

We are grateful that we will again be able to help individuals attend the National Patient Education Conference in Arizona, thanks to the generous support of many donors and chapters. Conference scholarships are intended for first-time attendees and those individuals who would be otherwise unable to attend the event without outside financial assistance.
