About this event

WHAT IS IT?
The day helps participants learn the medical facts about Lupus and how to live with this chronic illness. The group is limited in size so that experiences can be shared.

WHO CAN ATTEND AND WHY?

All people with lupus and family members or significant others are encouraged to take the class. Learning the facts about Lupus is vital in helping oneself cope with the illness. The sharing of experiences is a valuable way of learning and being with others with lupus means being with others who understand.
