Our in person support group meetings provide a safe environment where attendees can engage in confidential, non-judgmental interactions with peers who know what it feels like to live with spondylitis.
Support Group Leaders are prepared with helpful resources to share with attendees on the management of ankylosing spondylitis and related diseases. Many groups bring in occasional speakers such as rheumatologists, physical therapists, nutritionists, and other wellness professionals to provide group members with practical information, spondylitis education, and disease management resources.
SAA’s volunteer support group leaders live with spondylitis and share a common goal of bringing the community together. They strive to provide support, education, encouragement, and co-create with group members dynamic, supportive, and informative meetings.
