These conferences are held to promote awareness for scleroderma. Due to the rarity of the disease much of this information is not readily collected and thus very hard for patients to understand and gather. This conference provides the opportunity to interact and engage with medical professionals to gauge what they don’t know and what they know on a first hand basis. Doctors and patients will interact to mutually understand what is needed at the current state of scleroderma. In addition many patients are not seen by doctors specializing in scleroderma and can make treatment extremely difficult, with all the doctors that are known to be familiar to scleroderma exi019sting in one location from all across Canada we provide them the best.
