Sjögren’s Syndrome Cross-Canada Webinar:  Navigating An Immune System Gone Wild
Celebrate Canada's 150th Birthday with our 2017 Interactive, Live-stream Webinar. On Saturday, October 21, from Noon until 3 pm ET, we are welcoming an expert panel of presenters, LIVE. There will be time to ask your questions after each presentation and also another chance to ask questions of the whole panel before the end of the webinar.


Arthur A. M. Bookman, MD FRCPC, Rheumatologist
Sjögren’s:  More Than Meets the Eye and MouthA person with Sjögren’s knows that they have been besieged but on the surface there does not appear to be much happening.  Sjögren’s leads to inflammation of salivary and lacrimal glands, and spills over to affect many internal organs.  The diagnosis is difficult and the treatment even harder, but with good comprehensive care, patients can control many manifestations of this condition.  
Rookaya Mather, MD, FRCSC, Ophthalmologist, Cornea and External Disease Understanding & Managing Dry Eye Disease - Sjögren’s Syndrome is a chronic, destructive inflammatory disease of the ocular surface.  In her presentation, Dr. Mather will provide the audience a better understanding of dry eye disease and how it pertains to managing and living with the disease.
Cindy L. Marek, PharmD, FACA, Dentist-Pharmacist
Update on Products for Dry Mouth and Strategies for Oral Comfort - Will discuss new and revised products available to help ease the symptoms of dry mouth and review the scientific evidence for the efficacy of these products.
Melinda Szilva, TS, CCC, RP, Registered Psychotherapist
“The Long and Winding Road” - The road to being diagnosed with Sjögren’s can be a long one and living with chronic illness can become discouraging at times. She will share self-care strategies and talk about the importance of finding hope and comfort in the midst of challenging times.

Each presenter will have 25 minutes to present followed by 5 minutes to answer questions. We will break after two people have presented for 8-10 minutes and then resume with the remaining two presenters.  We will wrap up with approximately 30 minutes of additional questions for the entire panel at the end of the presentations.
