COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 policy of our national office, the Ohio Chapter is cancelling all face-to-face meetings and education days until further notice.  We encourage patients and caregivers to stay in touch with us via the Virtual Support Group free meetings on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7 PM (see below).  Some of the other groups are also holding virtual meetings via Zoom as you'll see below.

Ohio Support Groups 2020

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 out information about upcoming speakers or meeting topics, please contact the support group leader or chapter office.

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.
