Lupus & You: Men & Lupus
This June, as we celebrate Men’s Health Month, we want to shine a light on men living with Lupus. This free online education program will focus on the genetic differences between men and women with lupus, disease management, and treatments. The information covered in this program will be helpful for both patients and their caregivers.
Our speaker, Dr. Kamen is an Associate Professor of Medicine in the MUSC Division of Rheumatology and Immunology. She completed her undergraduate training at Northwestern University, graduated from the University of Kansas School of Medicine in 1999, completed her Internal Medicine residency and Rheumatology fellowship at the Medical University of South Carolina in 2005. Dr. Kamen's ongoing research focuses on gaining insights into pathogenic mechanisms responsible for lupus and finding safe and effective therapies to stop its progression. She has headed several large NIH-funded observational studies, including the SLE in Gullah Health cohort, with a focus on investigating environmental triggers of lupus and addressing the health dispartities impacting patients with lupus.
