Monthly Educational Meetings
Our Monthly Educational Meetings are held on the 1st Wednesday of each month from 11:30am until 1:30pm, except January, at the South Perth Library, Corner South Terrace and Sandgate Street, South Perth. Each month a guest presenter talks about a subject related to fibromyalgia. We then break for tea/coffee, followed by an informal chat/question session with some of our committee members. Friends and family are welcome.
The cost is $5, including the tea/coffee. You don't need to book. Just turn up on the day.
Our informal social Coffee Catchups are a great opportunity to get together with others in in your area who have fibromyalgia. Spending time and chatting with others who truly understand what you are going through can be a big morale booster.
Friends and family are very welcome. You don't need to book... Just turn up on the day. Look out for our logo on the table.
