About Us

Welcome to the Mid-Atlantic Chapter

We are one of 13 chapters of the National Scleroderma Foundation working across the country to contribute to our national mission to advance medical research, promote disease awareness, and provide support and education to people with scleroderma, their families and support networks. We work in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, South and Central New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia to offer local scleroderma educational opportunities for people affected by scleroderma and fundraisers to drive our mission.  Join now as a member or volunteer and learn how you can be a part of our local scleroderma community!
