National Awareness Campaign Launched for Lupus Awareness Month
Julian Lennon is a long-standing supporter of the Foundation, and our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family during this time.
People with lupus need and deserve a full arsenal of treatments. With many new and innovative drugs for lupus in the drug pipeline, these highly anticipated treatments will mean nothing if people with lupus cannot afford them.
We welcome their combined contributions to the urgent fight against lupus.
This year, the Foundation’s National Research Program will fund priority areas in lupus research, including new grants in environmental triggers of lupus and health outcomes in pediatric lupus.
The request for nominations for the Lupus Insight Prize will open January 15, 2015 and will be awarded at the Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCIS) annual meeting in San Diego this June.
