The Greater Boston Sjögren's Syndrome Support Group invites you to the Saturday, February 1, 2014 meeting.

It will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon at Tufts Medical Center, Sackler Building, Room 114, 145 Harrison Avenue, Boston, Massachusetts.

This meeting will consist of round-table discussions, facilitated and non-facilitated on the topics you choose.

The goal with the annual Face-to-Face meeting is to encourage the patient-to-patient information sharing and support that tends to happen spontaneously whenever Sjögren's patients get together. They will use a format with three 30-minute discussion periods, with discussion groups of varying sizes at up to ten tables in each period. Some groups will have facilitators. Most tables will start with pre-selected topics of interest, but some tables in each period will be free for spontaneous discussions.

1. A call for your topic suggestions: Please contribute topics that interest you, as soon as possible, to the growing online list at http://tinyurl.com/SjoBostonTopics, or by email to david@dry.org.

2. A call for your topic feedback: To best schedule the discussion groups, we need a preview of who is interested in which topics, before the meeting begins. You can sign up for topics of interest at http://tinyurl.com/SjoBostonTopics .

3. A call for facilitators: To keep the group dynamics on an even keel in our larger discussion groups, they will need a limited number of volunteer facilitators. To volunteer for this role, please contact: Lynn.Epstein@Tufts.edu .

4. Kindly RSVP for the meeting, to: Lynn.Epstein@Tufts.edu. Once again bring friends and family with you, as well as your stories and suggestions for the Greater Boston Support Group.

For those taking the MBTA: The "Tufts Medical Center" Orange Line stop is located across from the main hospital entrance on Washington Street.

For those who prefer to drive: Parking is available in the Medical Center's garage at: 274 Tremont Street, next to the Wang Center and parking tickets will be validated at the meeting for reduced parking rates.
