Alabama Service Area

The Lupus Foundation of America, Mid-South Chapter offers several support groups throughout Alabama. The philosophy of LFA support groups is to 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 to living with this chronic disease.

Each support group includes an LFA certified and trained leader, a specific meeting date on a monthly basis, a confidential sharing environment, and informational material about lupus. Our support groups are a self-help group where those living with lupus can come together to be themselves and receive educational materials by using community resources.
