The Sjögren’s Society of Canada is committed to advocating for the needs of Sjögren’s patients and to improve conditions for people living with Sjögren’s. This includes better patient care and education, better access to medications and treatments, increased public awareness and research into, and funding for, Sjögren’s provincially and federally. Individuals also play a critical role in achieving these goals.
What is an Advocate?
An advocate is someone who helps themselves or helps other people or groups understand their needs. An advocate informs and educates the needs of Sjögren’s patients and their healthcare providers and funders. You and I are advocates when we take control over a situation and attempt to effect change.
