Regional Director's Update, November 2019

We are excited to announce that we now have a third LFA staff member in the Southern California Region! Wendy Rodgers, long-time LFA advocate and support group leader, has joined our team as Community Outreach and Patient Engagement Manager. In her new role, Wendy will focus on multi-cultural outreach as well as patient and community engagement. She is pictured at left with the Rev. Jesse Jackson at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's recent conference.

We celebrated the 15th Annual Los Angeles Walk To End Lupus Now on September 28th with more than 3,000 participants! You can visit to see how joyous and meaningful the day was for all of us.

As always, I welcome your calls and look forward to meeting you in person. You can reach me at 310.560.4587 or via email at
