Patient Education

Patient Education & Support

Spring Patient Conference and Scleroderma 101
The Scleroderma Foundation Greater Chicago Chapter is dedicated to keeping the scleroderma community informed, connected and supported.

The Scleroderma Foundation takes very seriously the threat the coronavirus (COVID-19) presents to individuals living with scleroderma, who are immuno-compromised. Given the recent developments in the U.S. and around the world, we are cancelling our Patient Education Conference on April 18 in Oakbrook and our Scleroderma 101 event on May 7 in Chicago. We want to do what's best for our scleroderma community. Your health and safety are of utmost importance to us.

STAY TUNED! Even though the conference will not take place, we still want you to have this valuable information. We are currently working on ways to deliver as much of this educational content as possible via webinars, videos and other online material. It is important to us that we continue to provide you with the knowledge you need to manage scleroderma and live better, and we are making every effort to do that.

 For presentations and videos from past conferences, take a look at our SlideShare and YouTube sites.
