Support for You in TAS

 Tasmanian Branch Manager – Jessica

Jessica joined AAAF in the role of Tasmanian Branch Manager in April 2018 after being diagnosed with Alopecia Areata in November 2017. Jessica is enthusiastic about creating a more extensive support network within Tasmania and being Launceston based, believes this is a great starting point. Jess  is passionate about building supportive relationships, creating understanding and awareness as she understands the need for support and assistance locally. Jess has worked as an Early Childhood Educator and enjoys playing social netball.

TAS Support Group

Support groups are a fantastic way to get in touch with other people who are living with Alopecia Areata, to ask questions and find new friends. Our Facebook groups are closed groups and you will be contacted by an administrator to ensure you are joining the correct state group and are part of the alopecia community.
