    When a person is diagnosed with Sjögren’s syndrome, they often don't know where to begin. This program will introduce you to three Sjögren’s patients who will share their journey with you. In addition, you will hear from Sjögren’s experts about the causes, treatments and manifestations of Sjögren’s. From there, we hope you will have a place to begin as you develop a partnership and treatment plan with your physician. To learn more even more about Sjögren’s and find out what resources are available, contact the Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation online at http://www.sjogrens.org or by phone at 800-475-6473.

        ‘Strangers Who Stare’ tells the story of what it’s like to live with the autoimmune condition, Alopecia Areata*. Utilizing portraiture and personal history, it explores issues of appearance, identity, and perception, but it’s really about how we look at how we look – when we don’t look like each other. *Alopecia Areata is a disease in which the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy hair follicles resulting in hair loss, ranging from localized patchy bald spots to complete hair loss of the head and body [Alopecia Universalis]. Though not life-threatening, it is random, pattern-less, and incurable, and it attacks both men and women of all ages.

What are we to do? The Canary Kids Project: An Innovative Crowd-Sourced Solution to the Epidemic of Chronic Illness in Our Children Did you know that conditions like autism, ADHD, asthma, and allergies can be reversed in many children? For years, healthcare practitioners and researchers have been witnessing individual cases of chronic illnesses reversed in children. Many people believe that chronic illnesses like autism, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and asthma are genetic, lifelong, and irreversible. Not so. In fact, much of what contributes to these conditions is environmentally-derived and within our control. What is the Canary Kids Project? The Canary Kids Project is demonstrating that there is evidence of hope for recovery for millions of children living with chronic illnesses.
