About Us

Welcome to the Rocky Mountain Chapter!

We are one of 16 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 Rocky Mountain area 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!
