Media Relations

Lupus is an unpredictable and misunderstood disease that ravages different parts of the body. It is difficult to diagnose, hard to live with, a challenge to treat, and can be fatal. 

The resources on this page and throughout our website provide essential information for members of the news media who are developing stories about lupus and the work of the Lupus Foundation of America. We encourage the news media to cite information from our website and share our national toll-free information request telephone number, 800-558-0121, and our website,, as resources in their articles. Reporters may also contact us directly for additional information.
