On behalf of our San Antonio-area Support Group Leader, Kristen Hewitt, we’re inviting you to join us on Saturday, September 26 at 10:00 a.m. (CT) for an online meeting that will be open discussion.

Come meet others and discuss what it’s like living with a rare neuroimmune disorder. Ask questions, share your stories, or just listen – everyone is welcome to participate in their preferred way.

If you are planning to attend, please RSVP below to receive the login information. We are capping each meeting at a maximum of 25 attendees. The first 25 people to RSVP will receive the login information. Please check your Spam folder if you do not receive an email within 24 hours of signing up.

Sharing our experience is important. SRNA collects stories as part of our Hope Ambassador series. You read our Hope Ambassador’s stories here: https://wearesrna.org/about/hope-ambassadors/

Don’t forget to check out our Resource Library for videos, articles, and podcasts.

After reading, watching, and/or listening, be sure to come on Saturday and share your experiences with us.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Thank you to Kristen for making this happen.

Here are the details for this online support group meeting focusing on open discussion. 

First, make sure your computer, tablet, or phone is compatible with Zoom.

Also, please make sure you mute yourself when you are not speaking. The presenter is able to mute and unmute attendees, but it is easier if we all work together to ensure there is no background noise. Along those same lines, we recommend using headphones if possible. It helps eliminate feedback and makes it easier for attendees to hear more clearly.

Zoom allows for video and audio options. You are welcome to join via your computer and webcam device, tablet, or you can simply call in via phone. There is no requirement to turn on your camera if you do not want to.

We will start on time to respect everyone’s schedule.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns before or during the meeting, please contact Jeremy Bennett at jbennett@wearesrna.org and he will assist you.
