Scleroderma Atlantic welcomes Jan Nitti from the American Raynaud’s Organization and Linda Kwakkenbos from SPIN to December’s Zoom Webinar: Getting a Grip on Scleroderma Hands.
Jan shares facts on Raynaud’s, treatments and medications available, as well as how to advocate for yourself during a hospital visit. She will also discuss digital ulcers, their causes, and how to care for them. Linda Kwakkenbos shares what the Scleroderma Patient-centered Intervention Network (SPIN) is and the work they do within the scleroderma community, including their new exercise program designed to increase hand functionality. Whether you are newly diagnosed or have been living with scleroderma and Raynaud’s for years, you will find this webinar informative and helpful.
The Scleroderma Atlantic Webinar Series is supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund and Community Foundation of Nova Scotia.
