The Scleroderma Foundation Healthcare Professional Membership

Helping physicians and academics keep in touch with what is happening in scleroderma research.

Dr Richard SilverDue to increasing interest and an ever-widening field of inquiry about scleroderma research, the Scleroderma Foundation created its Healthcare Professional Membership Program.

“It was not many years ago that scleroderma research was being done by a relatively small group of investigators,” said Dr. John Varga, the Chair of the Scleroderma Foundation Medical Advisory Board. “Today, however, we see advances in scleroderma and diseases related to it spreading over an increasingly wide area. Along with progress comes change. It is more difficult to stay in touch with studies and research than ever before.”

The Healthcare Professional Membership Program helps researchers and clinicians with a valuable website that offers information about the latest developments regarding scleroderma treatment and research. In addition, there is a wide variety of disease-specific resources. This program may be useful to doctors who specialize in several fields that overlap with the scleroderma symptoms. If you are a practitioner in any of the following disciplines, including: rheumatology, dermatology, gastroenterology, pulmonologists, pediatrics or family practice - you may benefit by becoming a member today.

Physician members receive articles, pamphlets and our "Scleroderma Information Packets" for free. You also receive a discount to our National Patient Education Conference and other special events; periodic email updates about new or advancing research; access to an interactive bulletin board, and much more.
