IgA Nephropathy Foundation Peer Support Resources

You are not alone in your IgAN journey. If you’d like to get help and resources from others on the same path, we offer several peer support resources to connect you with other IgAN patients and care partners.

Facebook Groups

If you’re looking for support online, there are several Facebook groups where you can connect with other IgAN patients or care partners:

For updates on new peer support offerings and other IgAN resources, please like our IgA Nephropathy Foundation Facebook page as well.

Virtual Support Groups

We invite you to join our monthly IgAN Support Group! We hold these virtually on the third Monday of every month to give IgAN patients and care partners an opportunity to meet each other and share their journeys. If you’re interested, please fill out the form below and you will receive details about the Support Groups. We hope to see you there!


If you have any questions, are looking to connect with someone, or don’t know where to start, please reach out to us at info@igan.org!
