SUPPORT & EDUCATION GROUP

We are Here for You

Learn how to take control of your fibromyalgia at our supportive and informational group. The group meets monthly on Zoom. Prior to COVID, the group met for 23 years at Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital in Warren, MI.  St. John Providence/Ascension has been an invaluable partner for over 23 years. Over 1600 people have attended our meetings and 30 people on average participate monthly. Physicians regularly refer their fibromyalgia patients to our group. Membership benefits include: learning the latest advances in fibromyalgia research, diagnosis and treatment; expert speakers at meetings; spending time with other members to learn coping tips and share support; Interpreters available for people who are deaf; and optional group orientation available for newcomers.

BECOME A MEMBER

Having fibromyalgia can be confusing and even overwhelming. Do you long to talk to other people who really understand what you are going through? Our members understand how challenging life is with Fibro and newcomers are always welcome.

 

 Educated patients have improved health outcomes. Becoming knowledgable about your diagnosis (or multiple diagnoses) can help you make more informed decisions. Having a chronic illness (or likely illnesses) is stressful. Becoming educated has been shown to reduce stress and perhaps even save you money. 

 

We know it's not easy to add one more item to your calendar. We have fibromyalgia, so we get it. We work with you to keep you comfortable at our meetings. You can participate as much or as little as you would like. We bring in expert speakers, watch videos and have discussions. The content and style of meetings vary so we can meet the needs of all of our members. If you are looking for education and support in a positive environment, please join us. Your first meeting is free. Membership is $16 for the year.  A family member can join with you for just an extra $5.00. 

Never miss a meeting by signing up for our free monthly E-Newsletter. It will remind you about upcoming meetings, share helpful coping tips and more. Sign up today!
