New Support Tools Added to Email Series Empowering You to Make Better Decisions on Your Health
At the Lupus Foundation of America, we believe in being your partner when it comes to your health. Your health can be impacted greatly by the choices and habits you make. With the development of Take Charge, a 12-week educational email series, we have armed the lupus community with engaging resources and tools they can use to better manage the daily challenges of living with lupus.
In the first version of the series launch, we addressed topics such as coping mechanisms, treatment plans, how to communicate with your doctor, and finding the overall support you need. To build upon this series and gain insight into other topics our participants were interested in, we reached out to people like you, and we listened.
We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from participants who went through the original version of the Take Charge series. As some of our Take Charge participants wrote:
“I like the Take Charge series because it helped me take charge of my healthcare and become my own health advocate.”
“With my daughter being newly diagnosed, alerting her to anything that can help her is a way to support her.”
“It was great to have this educational series. I'm a physician assistant so I was already familiar with a lot of the content; but I still think it was a valuable and timely resource.”
“The mystery of the disease is what makes it so hard to navigate. As a caregiver, I don’t want to make a mistake on my end. Thank you for checklists that reinforce that I am doing all I can.”
“I was diagnosed with lupus 30 years ago! At times I get lax and stop listening to my body! I’m still having flares with organ involvement. The Take Charge series has been a much-needed reminder for me to remain diligent! Thank you very much!”
We collected feedback from participants who finished the email series and rolled out new content and resources earlier this month. The newly introduced topics provide information, resources, and tips around mental health awareness, pregnancy, diet and nutrition, as well as ways to stay physically active.
Whether you’re newly diagnosed, a longtime lupus warrior, or a caretaker, our series is here to empower and inspire you each day to take an active role in your treatment.
