Patient Support and Education Programs and Services

If you or someone close to you has been diagnosed with lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, myositis, osteoporosis, or scleroderma, our social support programs can help. These programs are available to HSS patients and are often available to the public.

Lupus Programs

Support, education, empowerment, and advocacy are offered in English, Spanish, and Chinese through our national bilingual telephone peer support program, publications, and on-site group.

Myositis Support and Education Program

Through this free program, you can learn about your illness and learn to live more fully - both from health care professionals and from others who have the same illness.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Programs

HSS offers free support and education programs to people with rheumatoid arthritis and their family members, whether newly diagnosed or living with the illness for years.

Osteoporosis Programs

These programs provide ongoing support, education, encouragement, and coping strategies to those affected by this life-altering disease.

Scleroderma Support Group

This support group brings together people living with scleroderma, including family members and friends, to create a network of support and encouragement.
