For those of you in the state of Texas, Northwest Rheumatology, a division of Northwest Diagnostic Clinic, will host a free Lunch & Learn event on Sjogren’s Sydrome: The Forgotten Disease on Tuesday, Jan. 26, from 11:45 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the South Montgomery County Woodlands Chamber of Commerce Board Room.

Dr. Tamar Brionez of Northwest Rheumatology will speak on the definition, symptoms and therapeutics of Sjogren’s Syndrome, a disease often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed due to symptoms that mimic other medical conditions. This Lunch & Learn is the second in a quarterly series that will address a variety of health topics.

“This is a great topic to discuss,” said Dr. Brionez. “The lunch will be very informative and I look forward to addressing the questions and concerns commonly associated with Sjogren’s Syndrome. I am excited to be the next speaker in this series.”

The event is free and open to the public. Reservations are required and must be made by Friday, Jan. 22.

With four physicians on staff, Northwest Rheumatology specializes in the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Scleroderma, Sjogren’s Syndrome, Psoriatic Arthritis, Lupus and other autoimmune diseases, as well as Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis. With offices in The Woodlands and Houston, the clinic offers several areas of expertise including family practice, internal medicine and rheumatology, as well as on-site ancillary services such as CT, MRI, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, bone density testing, infusion and laboratory services.
