“Knowledge is the success to this disease as you can advocate for oneself when you seek medical help.”
What our 2022 attendees say
"Such a fresh approach - not too ‘medical’ and great to see so many young faces."
"I am impressed with how smoothly the very first Sjorgens Summit went.
The very knowledgeable Dr Kara Wada and other guest speakers were not only knowledgeable, they were empowering. I am proud of the guest speakers, many of which are resourceful women who have 1st hand experience with Sjogrens.
The 2 day event was very informative and enlightening. I learned of some great resources and ways to advocate for myself. Looking forward to the next one!"
"This Summit helps all of us suffering to get the knowledge and motivation to advocate for ourselves!"
What our 2022 Speaker say
It was great to collaborate with other health practitioners who are as passionate as I am about Sjogren’s care. Sjogren’s is a frustrating disease, with challenging symptoms, long delayed diagnosis, and lack of clinician familiarity with the disease. Sjogren’s is a serious multi-system disease, never just dryness. The widespread symptoms are often downplayed or psychologized by clinicians and loved ones. Ongoing monitoring and management are central to good Sjogren’s care. By sharing our knowledge, experience and resources, the Sjogren’s Summit presenters help patients understand both lifestyle approaches and medical management.
