(NOTE:  See our handy statewide Support Group list, below, too)

Support groups for patients and caregivers are excellent forums for sharing information and receiving emotional support.

They include speakers who focus on all aspects of the disease. They are not therapy sessions.  Qualified professionals lead each group.
