The Woodlands Support Group

Upcoming Meeting(s)

Saturday, March 14, 2020
10:00 am -11:30 am

TOPICOutcome Studies and The Latest Spondyloarthritis Research

GUEST SPEAKER: John D. Reveille, MD

Dr. Reveille is Chief of Rheumatology at UT Health Sciences Center-Houston-Texas Medical Center. He is internationally recognized for his research and work with Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS), and is also on the Board of Directors of the Spondylitis Association of America.

After Dr. Reveille speaks he likes to entertain questions. In fact we have some tough ones already lined up. Please keep in mind this is not a time to ask him to diagnose your illness. But, it’s a great opportunity to learn more on how to deal with the disease of AS.

Please RSVP, and feel free to bring your spouse, family, and friends. I recommend you come early and get a good seat.
