Virtual Support Group Meetups

SAF invites you to attend our regular virtual support group meetings. The virtual support group meetings are very popular and evolved from in-person meetings during the recent pandemic. Participation continues to grow with new sign ups every month. Meetings are held monthly and participants range from newly diagnosed to longtime members and everyone in between. We meet virtually on zoom and then break up into small groups depending on the number of people.

Important Information

The process to join is easy! Simply register to be added to the invitation lists for your specific meeting group. On the morning of the meeting, you will receive the zoom link to join the meetup.

You only need to register once, so you don’t have to keep signing up every month! You will automatically be added to the invitation list for future meetings. SAF often posts announcements about upcoming meetings, so don’t think that you need to sign up again.

The meetings are not recorded to protect the privacy of participants and allow for the free exchange of conversation.
