'In the Loop - Healthy Living with Lupus' Symposium
Save the date of Sat., October 17th, for our annual 'In the Loop - Healthy Living with Lupus' symposium. Due to COVID-19, this year's symposium will be a virtual event.
NaKaisha Tolbert-Banks, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker/Therapist and Certified Life Coach is our keynote speaker. You may have seen NaKaisha recently on WTHR News where she did a six-week series offering mental health tips. We're confident NaKaisha's keynote 'It’s Okay To... Laugh: Boosting Your Mental Health and Wellness One Giggle at a Time' will be informative and fun! NaKaisha's keynote is the only live real-time segment of the symposium. It will be presented at 11:00 am on Sat, Oct. 17th.
The five breakout session topics are being pre-recorded so that you have access to watch them at your convenience as often as you'd like.
TOPICS AND SPEAKERS:
Lupus and Medication Management (Dr. Steven Neucks, Rheumatologist)
Lupus and COVID-19 (Dr. David Batt, Rheumatologist)
Research: Past, Present and Future (Dr. Gary Gilkeson, Rheumatologist)
Lupus and the Kidneys (Dr. Nancy Baird, Nephrologist)
Managing Your Lupus and the Importance of Honest, Open Communication with Yourself, Your Doctor and Healthcare Team (Cindy Fiske, BSN)
Registering for the symposium provides you with the opportunity to submit questions that you'd like to see addressed during the breakout sessions*. Questions should be sent to Damiah Woodmore by Friday, August 21.
*Please understand that the speaker will not be able to offer specific medical treatment for you personally.
In addition to registering for the entire program, since not all topics may be of interest to you, we are providing the opportunity to register for the individual pre-recorded breakout sessions.
