The SPIN Advisory Board is directed by and largely comprised of people living with scleroderma, supported by expert consultants. The Advisory Board will (1) review the overall SPIN project and individual SPIN intervention projects and (2) advise the Steering Committee so that SPIN maximally reflects the needs of people with scleroderma and ensures successful knowledge transfer within the scleroderma community as well as with the broader rare disease community.
