Providing Answers, Support and Hope in Georgia
Find a Support Group in Your Area
The well being of our patients is our highest priority. Due to COVID-19 and in accordance with CDC guidelines, all support will be held via teleconference until further notice.
Important Note: Our Support Network is essential to all the chapter’s efforts, working tirelessly to support patients, our programs and events and advocate for awareness. On any given weekend, you can find our support group members at health fairs across the state, spreading awareness and sharing our resources.
Our facilitators represent an outstanding group of volunteers who understand the issues that challenge individuals with lupus. Our support groups are often times the first valuable resource for both newly diagnosed and those who feel they are living with this disease without the understanding of friends and family.
