About Iain McDonald, The Woodland's Support Group Leader

Iain and his wife Jane have lived in The Woodlands for over 23 years and have been part of The Woodlands AS support group since its inception in 2008. He retired from Anadarko Petroleum in 2015.

Iain has had SpA for about 50 years, first showing up as iritis. Ten years later he was finally diagnosed. He is a big advocate of staying active to ease the symptoms of SpA. He recommends everyone find an activity they can handle and keep at it. He really enjoys the camaraderie of the SAA Support Group. It’s a fun time of learning and encouragement.
