SINGAPORE ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS CLUB
The Singapore Ankylosing Spondylitis Club (SASC) is a support group for patients with Ankylosing Spondylitis. It was formed in 1990 under the umbrella of the National Arthritis Foundation.
Objectives of the club are:
1) To motivate patients to preserve their mobility through a regular exercise programme.
2) To promote awareness of Ankylosing Spondylitis among patients and their families.
3) To improve patient morale so that they can better cope with their disease.
Activities of the club :
Our Club activities include regular talks by healthcare professionals on topics related to AS and to help patients cope with AS. At these sessions (usually done via webinars), participants also get to interact with the speakers through a Q&A session. There is also an AS Club chat group where members share useful information about their AS journey with one another in the chat.
Other activities include social gatherings (like having meals at local favourite places) and outings to interesting places.
