Narrative

The Massachusetts Alopecia Areata Support Group is part of NAAF, National Alopecia Areata Foundation.  We are a support group whose mission is to support those who have been affected by this disease and their families. Alopecia is an auto-immune disease which attacks the hair follicles and makes the hair fall out.  

The Support Group is open to  men, women, and children who have hair loss. Our support meetings are held every other month from September to June at Newton Wellesley hospital from 7-9p.m. on the first Monday of the month. All are welcome to attend. RSVP is required to massalopeciasupportgroup@live.com
