‘Purple for a Purpose’ Youth Experience
'Purple for a Purpose' Youth Experience is an event for children and teens ages 7-19 who have lupus or have a family member with lupus. Parents are welcome to attend with their children.
This educational and fun event will be held on Saturday, July 30, from 1:00-4:00 pm.
One-hour breakout and Q&A sessions will be held with the following guest speakers:
- Youth who have lupus Dr. Kathleen O'Neil, Professor of Pediatrics, Indiana University School of Medicine Chief, Section of Rheumatology, Riley Hospital for Children

- Parents of youth impacted by lupus NaKaisha Tolbert-Banks, licensed clinical social worker and owner of D.U.O. EmpowerMEnt Services
The last two hours are spent in an instructor-led canvas painting activity. After the paintings are finished, attendees vote for the favorite painting done by the youth attendees and we use a photo of that painting as our chapter Christmas card. Here's what we'll be painting:
Light snacks will be provided.
