April 1998 — April 2015
A step back in time! First meeting of the SWA in 1999.
The Scleroderma Webmaster's Association (SWA) encouraged the worldwide development and recognition of high-quality medical information and support resources for scleroderma.
It was founded by Shelley Ensz, and operated by the non profit International Scleroderma Network from 2002 to 2015.
Now that ample quality resources for scleroderma are available, we have switched to simply linking to such sites within sclero.org.
Original SWA member sites that are still in existence remain listed here, in everlasting gratitude for their service to us all.
