Support Groups

Support groups provide a safe and understanding environment where people with lupus can come together to ask questions, listen to others, or lend a helping hand.  At times, speakers lead discussions while other times the group discussion is spontaneous.  Please contact the support group leader prior to attending the first meeting to verify all information.
