New Telephone Support Group!

Hi Everyone - our chapter (Scleroderma Foundation, Tri-State) is launching a new support group tomorrow called Tri-State Connect. This new concept will provide support and education for scleroderma patients, family members and caregivers through a telephone conference call every month (3rd Tuesday).

Janet Ryan -- Wellness Solutions will be tomorrow night's speaker.
Janet will discuss the components of digestion and how they relate to whole body health. She will also compare types of supplementation, their bioavailability and benefits for auto-immune sufferers. As trained by naturopathic doctors and certified nutritionists, she will share suggested regimens for various auto-immune support.
In addition, she will give listeners an overview of a high level micronutrient analysis that will identify both nutrient and lipid deficiencies and imbalances that can be corrected nutritionally.

The support group leader is Jan E Gnall,MPA, BS, MLT, ASCP. If you would like to participate, pls email TSConnect@scleroderma.org or mbbkadylak@scleroderma.or for the phone # and access code.

Be well. Mary Beth

What a great idea. I wish they had that locally where I am. I am just not up to going to meetings but a phone support group would be great!

I'm from Georgia and called in to last night's meeting. It was very informative, and I look forward to future conference calls. Thank you so much for opening this up to those outside of your support group!

Is there a scheduled day and time for these meetings? I had no idea that the first meeting already happened. By the way, this is a terrific idea, and I really appreciate that this will be something that I can participate in. Thanks in advance. CC
