Hi

The 9th Annual Conference of the Sjogren's Society of Canada was held on May 2 and as usual I am writing blog posts about each speaker.

Here's the first one done http://bit.ly/1LQZqhu
Dr Bookman is the head of our Medical Advisory Board and usually starts the conference with an overview

The others are roughed out for the newsletter article which will be coming up in the next member's newsletter. It was great to meet ad talk to other people with Sjogren's in real life. This year  he sounded more optimistic.

Thank you for the appreciation.

We had a dynamite speaker, Iris Zink of the Rheumatology Nurses Society, who talked about sex and intimacy very openly. In her job she teaches health care professionals, in particular rheumatologists and their nurses, to counsel patients. That post is coming up.
