Learning how to manage the daily challenges of a disease that is both chronic and unpredictable is key to living well with lupus.

Two Years of COVID-19 - What We Have Learned
10:00 a.m.– 10:45 a.m.
Alfred H. Kim, MD, PhD
Co-Director, Lupus Clinic at Washington University, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Division of Rheumatology, Washington University School of Medicine

It has been two long years since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and at the beginning we knew nothing about how COVID-19 would influence those living with lupus. Now, through the extraordinary efforts of the global research community, we have a much deeper understanding of the impact COVID-19 has on the health and well-being of lupus patients. Dr. Kim will be discussing how living with lupus influences the severity of COVID-19 and identify effective approaches to protect people with lupus from COVID-19.
