September Meeting:  Many of our San Francisco Support Group members had a hot, hot, time in Scottsdale, Arizona, at the 33rd Annual NAAF Conference.  It was four days to share life   experiences, coping skills, and great friendships – old and new.  We heard directly from researchers about encouraging advances in the quest for acceptable treatments and the efforts of researchers and pharmaceutical companies to further understand what treatment modalities and what results patients would find acceptable. 

Most important was that many attendees made very personal connections within themselves to put alopecia areata into a positive perspective that will change their lives.  Several of our San Francisco Support Group members attended the summer conference and are energized by the experience and ready to share the highlights and help others with their process.  Your personal connection to alopecia areata is not a journey that should be taken alone.  The most comfortable path is to meet with others who can listen and understand what you are experiencing and help you take shortcuts to coping.  Please come to our September meeting to support or to be supported.  Dr. Jenny Fu will be on hand at the September meeting to answer your medical questions.
