The GSK Advocacy & Patient Engagement Team is excited to share with you our Patient Engagement Liaisons (PELs) webinar schedule. The goal is to expand educational offerings to those living with lupus and help them become empowered and better advocates for their care. All of these webinars are unbranded with no product mentioning.

Participants will be able to engage with and ask questions to the PELs. Of note, these educational webinars are for educational purposes only, and the PELs will reinforce that, as well as the importance of tracking symptoms and questions, and to speak with their physicians. Also, the PELs will not offer any medical advice and will direct patients to speak with their physicians.

It is highly recommended to join the event using a desktop computer, as experience on a mobile device may be suboptimal.
