Welcome to the New Lupus.org
By Sophie Yan, Online Communications Manager
Today, we are proud to unveil the new Lupus Foundation of America website, www.lupus.org. As the leading resource online about lupus, we are here to provide answers, information and support with a new look and navigation.
Answering your questions
We are answering your questions about the cruel mystery of lupus – literally. The new question and answer format helps people get the information they need faster and in greater depth than ever before.
We recognize all the different ways lupus can affect everyone who’s touched by the disease, which guided how we created our navigation. Information is organized by audience type: people with lupus, their friends and family, caregivers, and those who think they might have lupus. In addition, you are able to filter Q&A’s, research updates, educational podcasts, video and other news and stories by topics.
Learn more at www.lupus.org/answers.
Sharing is caring
As hard as it is to live with lupus, you play an important role in getting out the word and educating your family and friends about lupus. The new sharing function, which will show up on the side of most pages, will allow you to share information quickly and easily through various social media platforms and email.
Optimized for mobile
Did you know that nearly a third of our website traffic came from mobile devices last year? Because of that, this new website is now fully optimized for smartphones and tablets so you can access information about lupus on-the-go.
As a united force, the Lupus Foundation of America National Network of chapters, regional offices and support groups leads a nationwide movement to solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Through this new website, we integrate and feature their great work, including local news, upcoming awareness and fundraising events in the community and resources in their area. Learn more about all of our chapters at www.lupus.org/chapters.
Our research, education and advocacy programs in 2013 contributed advances that are helping to solve the cruel mystery of lupus.
