Message from Paris Drazek - coordinator of the patient partner program in South Africa

Hi everyone!!

I hope that when this newsletter reaches you, it will find you all well, warm and healthy. The winter frost has arrived once more and the low temperatures have us all running for our cozy woolies.  The PP programme though, is basking in the warm glow of success and so all the PPs are excluded from the winter chills, well maybe, not physically but definitely mentally and emotionally. The programme has seen a lot of growth in the past year and we are reaching more arthritis sufferers and more health care professionals very effectively. This month saw us training new PPs, as the areas we are now covering with our message is expanding and so our numbers are growing.  I extend a warmhearted welcome to all our new PPs.

  In the latest newsletter I have included the American Arthritis Foundation Drug Guide for 2002, notes from a talk that Dr Kim Quad Ling gave on Lupus in Jhb and more on Fibromyalgia and lots of other info that I hope you will be able to use in your patient education
