I am thrilled that the Sjogrens Syndrome Foundation has asked me to be the keynote speaker at the 2017 Sjogrens National Patient Conference. I spoke during the Awards dinner at the Seattle conference last year, and I am honored to speak again to our East Coast Sjogrens peeps.
Are you attending the event? The conference is March 31st-April 1st in the Philadelphia/Cherry Hill area. I’d also like your input…
Input for My Speech: 2017 Sjogrens National Patient Conference
If you read my blog, you know I speak (and ruminate) about the emotional impact of having to deal with a chronic illness on a daily basis. My perspective is always from a patient’s point-of-view. This year’s speech will continue with that emphasis and will use last year’s presentation as a foundation.
I would like your input to ensure I deliver tips, pointers, and personal commentary on your key interests. So my two questions for you are:
- If you saw the Seattle speech last year, what do you think would be a good addition for the East Coast patient attendees?
- If you are attending this year’s conference, what would you like me to share about how I manage, and adapt to, my Sjogrens?
To let me know your thoughts, please send me a comment via the Contact SjogrensLife page.
If you have not yet registered for the conference, be sure to register. You can download the brochure here. Or you can call the Foundation directly at 800-475-6473.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts and meeting you in person at the Conference!
