Oregon Support Groups
Support Groups provide a forum to share feelings, concerns, information, and 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.
The next Oregon Chapter Support Group Meeting is Saturday, May 14th!
When: May 14th, 2016, 10am-12pm
Where: Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital -- Wistar Morris Room
1015 NW 22nd Ave, Portland Oregon (map)
It's "Show and Tell" time! This month, we'd like to talk about the things that make living with scleroderma easier. Bring your favorite item and share it with the group! (If you can't bring it, you can just tell us about it.)
This could be a great opportunity for both new and returning members to learn about some things that could improve our daily lives with scleroderma!
