Do You Want to Meet Others Living With Sjögren’s Syndrome?

Are you one of the estimated four million people in the U.S. living with Sjögren’s syndrome? Are you going to be in the Seattle area between April 8th and 9th? If not, can you get to the Seattle area between April 8th and 9th? If so, there may still be time for you to join the Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation’s 2016 National Patient Conference!


Every year, the non-profit Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation hosts a National Conference that brings together patients, families, and experts to learn about the latest news in Sjögren’s research and topics of interest.

The theme of this year’s conference is “The Sjögren’s Journey,” which is appropriate given how many patients have had to embark on a long and winding journey to get a proper diagnosis. Sjögren’s syndrome can be easily mistaken for various autoimmune diseases like MS, RA, or lupus. Worse, there is no single test to quickly diagnose Sjögren’s.

As difficult as the Sjögren’s “journey” may be, you don’t have to travel it alone.

Good luck, and here’s wishing you smooth sailing!

Bon Voyage!
