Lupus Awareness Month

May is Lupus Awareness Month

Lupus is more pervasive and more severe than people think, and has an impact that the public doesn't realize. In fact, research shows that nearly two-thirds of the public knows little or nothing about lupus. You can help change that.

Get to KNOW LUPUS this May. Join our many activities taking place nationwide and encourage others to do the same.
