About Us

Welcome to the Tri-State 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 New York State, Northern New Jersey, and Connecticut to offer local scleroderma educational opportunities for people affected by scleroderma and fundraisers to drive our mission.  Become a member or volunteer and be a part of our scleroderma community.
