World Sjögren's Day was created to commemorate the birthday of Dr. Henrik Sjögren, a Swedish ophthalmologist, who discovered Sjögren's in 1933.
On July 23rd, the Sjögren's Syndrome Foundation will join with other Sjögren's organizations around the world to celebrate the 4th annual World Sjögren's Day and what would have been Dr. Henrik Sjögren's 114th birthday.
