New England 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.

Support groups often feature speakers specializing in scleroderma or related topics. To find information about upcoming speakers or meeting topics, please contact the support group leader or Chapter Office at (978) 887-0658 or admin@sfnewengland.org

This schedule is subject to change. Before attending a group for the first time, please call to verify date and time. Groups are free of charge and open to everyone.
