Under Construction

1. www.sjogrens.org
 

The Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation (SSF) is the go-to resource for reliable, up-to-date information about Sjogren's.   The amazing staff, and wonderful experts on the Medical and Scientific Advisory Board work on our behalf.  Take time to explore the website, www.sjogrens.org.   Check out the patient education brochures, conference CDs and many other resources.   If you have not already joined, it is truly worth it.  We are fortunate to have such a talented, hardworking, professional organization.   As you can tell, I['m a proud member and a big fan!.  

 

3.  Online discussion groups

NOTE- These groups share ideas, information and resources.  They can help you feel connected to the broader Sjogren's community.  However, please remember that they do not substitute for medical advice.  Please use your own  judgement when deciding what is useful to you.  Overall, I find the participants wise and generous. They helped inspire me to create this website.

A fairly new group, with robust discussion. Large numbers of newly diagnosed patients participate in this site.  Our wonderful moderator, Robin, is not a Sjogren's patient, but has a deep understanding of chronic illness and experience with patient advocacy.  She often posts links to pertinent articles and other resources on the site.

Free membership is required to join the community and its private discussions.
