New Patient Education Classes

Each month, we conduct a class for newly diagnosed patients. It is essentially a "Lupus 101" class, that covers basic information about managing the disease and living well. It is a great place to start when first learning about lupus. The class is not limited to newly diagnosed patients, though that is its main focus. The class is also a great way to learn about the most recent information about lupus, particularly for those who have been out of touch with the LFA for a little while.
