The SRF’s first-ever Patient Forum, “Collaborating For a Cure,” was an online half-day event for people living with scleroderma and those who care about them.

The event was held on June 1, 2022, at 9:00 am PDT/12:00 pm EDT, to kick off Scleroderma Awareness Month and featured leaders from the scleroderma scientific and medical community.

We hosted educational sessions on symptom management, new developments in research, and your vital role in helping to find a cure for this rare autoimmune disease.

The 2022 Patient Forum included:

  • Informative sessions presented by researchers and clinicians
  • Live Q&A with presenters
  • Patient resources
  • Interactive activities to win prizes
  • Sponsor Showcase
