Sjögren’s is a chronic, systemic, inflammatory autoimmune disease that usually attacks and damages the salivary, tear and mucous-secreting glands. An estimated 1% of Canadians, 90% of whom are women live with Sjögren’s yet it is often undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, and undertreated. Learn more

“Being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease like Sjögren's was depressing, frustrating, and confusing for me. After joining the Sjögren's Society of Canada, I am now feeling more empowered to take control over my condition. The society has given me the opportunity to attend educational webinars, in-person annual walks, and meet other Sjögren's patients. Learning from patients' experiences has helped me understand my disease and better adapt strategies to overcome the potential complications. I am happy to say that I am a proud member of the Sjögren's Society of Canada.”  RH
