Kathy Griffin patient caregiver outreach chair“I am excited to begin my new role as the Patient and Caregiver Outreach Chair at the Scleroderma Foundation Delaware Valley Chapter. I was diagnosed with scleroderma in 1995. Joining the Board of Directors last year has strengthened my commitment to advocacy. As the Support Group Leader for Camden and Burlington counties, I enjoy helping patients access the resources they need to improve their lives. I am looking forward to assisting patients and caregivers in the Delaware Valley."
