Living Well with Lupus Seminar: Lupus and the Major Organs
Lupus is known for being a cruel disease that can attack any part of the body. This seminar will focus on a few different major organs that lupus can significantly impact, including the lungs, kidneys, and brain, and provide comprehensive overviews of each.
Panel Discussion: Managing the '-ists'
Dr. Kyle Osbourne will moderate a panel discussion covering the many specialists within lupus, how to manage them, and when to ask for help. Questions include: How do you combat this anxiety of adding another doctor to your rotation? How do doctors communicate with each other regarding a patient’s health? What should people with lupus be aware of when taking new medications for new organ involvement?
