'Living with Lupus' Educational Events

We're in the process of planning educational events for 2016!  Our first two seminars in 2016 were held in Greenfield on February 10 and Evansville on April 20.  Our next seminar will be held in Indianapolis on Wed., June 1, at Basile Opera Center, 4011 N. Pennsylvania St.. Register for the Indianapolis Seminar.   We also hope to have seminars in South Bend and Columbus later this year. 

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., July 30, from 1:00-4:00 pm. This event will once again be held at Park Tudor School in Indianapolis. Additional details will be available soon.
