Kathy Lange, Suburban Chicago Group. I decided to become a co-leader to help keep the group going and to add new content to the meetings. Our group grew and we moved the meeting to the Rolling Meadows Library for easy access. Now we meet frequently at my new co-leader’s home.
Through our meetings we offer information as well as presentations by a variety of related professionals. We have had wonderful talks by rheumatologists, physical therapists, and representatives from pharmaceutical companies. In addition to these presentations there is always time for people to share with others with AS.
As the group has become more popular we have fostered a second group in the Chicagoland area.
