The Vasculitis Support Group
" The working committee Vaskulitis promotes the establishing of new regional support-groups all over Germany and to make them known. Thus patients who have not yet had any contact to a VPS group can get a chance of contacting hitherto unknown sources of help nad/or information. Of course, members try to get in touch with concerned ones in Germany and other European countries."
