AWISH support group leaders offer coping tips and education, and from a perspective of true understanding, provide reassurance to fellow participants.  Rheumatologists agree that support groups are important in proper disease management.  By talking to others afflicted by a disease similar to our own, we don't feel as alone in our illness.  We also glean new and different ways of dealing with our disease and the depression which sometimes can follow. Call us for further details.

Caring and Sharing
Arthritis and chronic pain sufferers gather once monthly to discuss various issues related to their illness and the effects it has on their lives and the lives of their loved ones.  For members of AWISH and their partners.

For those living with Scleroderma, AWISH sponsors this very special support group for its members who suffer from this disease, including their partners or caregivers. Meetings are normally held once monthly.
