SCLERODERMA AWARENESS MONTH | Episode 72 | Weekends With PsorPhil

June is Scleroderma Awareness Month, with June 29 being World Scleroderma Day. Sadly, for patients, they all know too well that every day is “scleroderma day.

Scleroderma, or systemic sclerosis, is a chronic connective tissue disease generally classified as one of the autoimmune rheumatic diseases. The word “scleroderma” comes from two Greek words: “sclero” meaning hard, and “derma” meaning skin. Hardening of the skin is one of the most visible manifestations of the disease.

Join us as we learn more about Scleroderma and hear insights from our guests Rowena Sia Ortiz, Dr. Aileen Agbanlog Dimatulac and Dr. Joseph Patrick Patricio
with our episode hosts, Paul Mendoza and Carol Velasco.

Catch Weekends With PsorPhil streaming live at 8pm every Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at PsorPhil's Official Facebook Page ( and PsorPhil's Official YouTube Page (PsorPhil Channel
