Support Groups provide resources, information and a sympathetic ear to those who have been affected by lupus in a caring and supportive environment.

We are proud that beginning in January 2014 the Indiana Chapter expanded its offering of support groups, "Living with Lupus", to now include fifteen communities.  Learn more about meeting dates, times and locations or call 800.948.8806.  Meeting details can also be located on our Events page.

We hope to soon announce a seminar to be held in Evansville in December.

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
