Weekly, Sunday Evenings at 9 PM

Dr. S. Sam Lim

If you have lupus, you’re at higher risk for infections like the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19. Some people with lupus may also be at risk for more serious complications from catching the coronavirus.

Join S. Sam Lim, MD, MPH as he provides up to date information on a weekly basis about what we know and don’t know about COVID-19 and how it may impact those living with lupus in Georgia.

Please Note: Due to the size of the group, questions must be submitted by 12 p.m. on the day of the call to [email protected]

Dr. Lim is Professor of Medicine and Professor of Epidemiology at Emory University. He is the Chief of Rheumatology for Grady Health Systems, where he founded and directs the Grady Lupus Clinic.
