Take control of your health by learning the most up-to-date information from the brightest minds in Sjögren's.

The SSF’s annual National Patient Conferences are the best way to learn more about Sjögren's. Over the years, these Conferences have helped thousands of patients and their family members gain a better understanding of Sjögren's while giving them an opportunity to meet fellow Sjögren's patients.

Each Conference features healthcare experts who address an array of Sjögren's topics, while also allowing time to answer your questions.
