Couple of new online articles about SjS
« on: May 02, 2019, 09:33:40 AM »
Hi all,

I found these on Twitter this morning

https://www.news-medical.net/health/Sjogrens-Syndrome-Related-Disorders.aspx

https://medicalxpress.com/news/2019-04-sjgren-syndrome-condition-venus-williams.html

Both are pretty good. I did comment that pointing to Venus Williams is a misnomer because she has the resources to access care that many can never dream of receiving.

Thank you for posting these.   I agree about Venus Williams, it's not clear how she copes, I wish we knew.
