Each year, the chapter sponsors empowering programs that feature local and national speakers knowledgeable in the diagnosis, treatment, and research efforts of Lupus and related disorders. Speakers include those living with lupus and in the specialty areas of rheumatology, psychiatry, nephrology, cardiology, and more. Plus, hear from other lupus warriors and caregivers!
People with lupus often feel alone with their disease and the everyday struggles it brings to their lives. LFA support groups, moderated by trained facilitators, provide a warm and caring environment where people with lupus, their family members, caregivers, and loved ones can share their experiences, methods of coping and insights into living with this chronic illness.
