Lupus 101
This session is designed for both the newly diagnosed patient and anyone needing a refresher in the basics.   Learn about current, medically accurate information on lupus, its symptoms, treatments and coping techniques.

Caregiving: Loving Someone with Lupus (Caregivers Only Session)
Presenter:
Stacie Camp Bennett, MA, LCAS, LPCS
Caregiver responsibilities can be overwhelming and draining, but taking care of yourself is one of the most important things you can do. The stronger you remain—physically and mentally—the more support you will be able to offer. To adequately give care, you must take care of yourself. This session is designed specifically for caregivers ONLY. It will discuss concrete ways of how to take care of yourself, including tips and advice.

Financial Planning with a Chronic Illness
A diagnosis of a debilitating chronic disease can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to the future of your finances. Talking openly about your health can be hard, but sharing your questions and challenges with those who can help you is extremely important, because recommendations can be better tailored to your needs. Learn about how to plan for your future, resources to take advantage of, and questions you should be asking yourself and professionals.
