Making a Difference
With the help of informed volunteers, lupus medical experts, and committed and caring supporters, we:

- provide information to ensure people with lupus and their families get answers and health professionals know about new means to diagnose and manage the disease; and,
- conduct activities to increase awareness of lupus, rally public support for those who are affected by lupus, and advocate on their behalf.
