Oregon Support Groups

Support groups provide a forum to share feelings, concerns, information as well as a place to offer peer support and encouragement. Solicitations or research projects are not conducted at support group meetings.  

Our meetings often feature speakers specializing in scleroderma or related topics. To find out information about upcoming speakers or meeting topics, please check the calendar or contact the support group leader or chapter office.

We are a very open, friendly and knowledgeable group!  Family members or friends are always welcome to attend, and our support group meetings are always free of charge.

Next Support Group is January 13th!


Dr. Lauren Kim, MD

Speaker:  Dr. Lauren Kim

The guest speaker for this meeting will be Dr. Lauren Kim, M.D.  She is a rheumatologist at Northwest Rheumatology in Portland, with a focus on scleroderma. 

Dr. Kim will be speaking on a topic to be determined, and then she will be answering questions in a Q&A session afterward!  

We look forward to seeing you there!
