April is Sjögren’s Awareness Month, during which the Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation along with members and volunteers seek to educate patients and families about Sjögren’s syndrome.

“Our goal is to increase public and health care professional awareness of Sjögren’s, further shorten the time for correct diagnosis, which now takes an average of 3 years, and encourage research into new treatments and a cure for one of the most prevalent autoimmune disorders affecting approximately 1% of the U.S. population,” Steven Taylor, the foundation’s chief executive officer, said in a press release.

Every day during the month of April, the foundation will provide facts, offer resources and share stories of those with Sjögren’s on their social media channels to educate consumers and professionals.
