'Living with Lupus' Educational Events

 Our first three seminars in 2016 were held in Greenfield on February 10, Evansville on April 20 and Indianapolis on June 1. We have a seminar scheduled in Valparaiso on Tuessday, November 29. Details are available now.

All lupus patients, caregivers, family, friends, and healthcare professionals interested in learning more about the disease lupus, and how to "live well" with lupus are invited to attend.

Program content and format will vary slightly from each event, but in general, our goal is to provide the lupus community with access to medical experts and resources, with emphasis on:

  • Lupus Clinical Features
  • Treatment Considerations
  • Lifestyle Consideration
  • Coping Strategies and more  

We'll also be hosting our third annual event for youth impacted by lupus on Sat., November 19, from 1:00-4:00 pm. This event will once again be held at Park Tudor School in Indianapolis.
