The Sjögren’s Foundation, in concert with our medical advisors, is continually monitoring the coronavirus/COVID-19 and what the Foundation and our patients should be doing.
From the very start of the pandemic, the Foundation took immediate action to ensure patients were safe and had the information they needed. We are incredibly proud of our strong response and hope it highlights our unwavering dedication to supporting all patients.
We are committed to the health and safety of our patients, their families and our volunteers, which is why all Foundation events are currently being held virtually. While things might look a little different, know that we will continue to work nonstop and navigate these upcoming months with you.
