2018-19 Florida Community Ambassadors
Are you interested in raising awareness about lupus and sharing your story?
Are you interested in being part of the LFA family?
The Lupus Foundation of America, Florida Chapter’s (LFAFL) Ambassador Program’s mission is to raise the awareness of lupus by sharing personal stories and information about lupus and LFAFL to targeted audiences in Florida, contributing to earlier diagnosis, proper treatment, and improved prognosis for those affected by this disease. Ambassadors increase awareness about the programs and services of the LFAFL and enable us to better serve the estimated 100,000 Florida residents living with lupus and those that care about them.
