Lupus Education Program To Underserved Population - Dallas
The Lupus Foundation of America, Lone Star Chapter recognizes that Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease which can be destructive to any organ or tissue in the body. The disease is very unpredictable and potentially fatal. Approximately 1.5 million Americans have a form of lupus. It strikes mostly females between the ages of 15 – 44, and women of color are two-three times more likely to develop lupus. These staggering figures are just part of the reason that our agency developed a new approach to educating two vulnerable populations of African American and Hispanic/Latino individuals living in Texas.
This event will provide you with educational information from professional medical presenters. Dr. Arti Gupta, Nephrologist and Dr. Marcia Genta, Rheumatologist will present about "Lupus and the Kidneys" and "How A Rheumatologist Helps A Lupus Patient".
Registration is required.
