Dr. John Reveille is a revered rheumatologist who has made significant contributions to the study and research of spondylitis. After his presentation, support group members had the opportunity to interact with Dr. Reveille.
Iain and his wife Jane have lived in The Woodlands for over 17 years and have been part of The Woodlands AS support group since its inception in 2008. He currently works at Anadarko Petroleum Corporation in the Global Engineering Technology group.
Iain has had AS for 44 years, first showing up as iritis. Fortunately he was diagnosed relatively early; it only took 10 years. He is a big advocate of staying active to ease the symptoms of AS. He recommends everyone find an activity they can handle and keep at it. He really enjoys the camaraderie of the SAA Support Group. It’s a great time of learning and encouragement.
