To provide support and education for diagnosed and undiagnosed Sjögren’s patients, to increase professional and public awareness, and to promote and fund Sjögren’s related research.
We provide regular educational programs for our members including newsletters, town halls, and a national patient conference. Patient and member support is provided through a network of 16 support groups across the country.
Awareness efforts are ongoing through our website, social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), fundraising campaigns and events, and wide distribution of our What is Sjögren’s brochures and posters to specialists and patients across the country. We celebrate Canadian Sjögren’s Awareness month in July with a social media campaign.
We are always seeking ways to encourage and promote Sjögren’s related research in Canada. Our goal is to award an annual research grant to a deserving Canadian researcher who will help to advance what we know about Sjögren’s.
