Lupus Education Opportunities

The GSK Advocacy & Patient Engagement Team is excited to share with you our Patient Engagement Liaisons (PELs) webinar schedule for January 2023. The PELs will conduct these webinars on GSK’s education platform and engagement hub (ON24) which allows patients to register for upcoming webinars, view on-demand videos, and allows access to resources. Our goal is to expand educational offerings to patients, as well as to help them become empowered and better advocates for their care. Please feel free to share via email to your patients and providers as we understand that there are gaps in patient education and understanding their disease. All of these webinars are unbranded with no product mentioning. Patients will have an opportunity to engage with and ask questions to the PELs. Of note, these educational webinars are for educational purposes only and the PELs will share that with the patients, and reinforce the importance to track 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.
