Lupus Tweens, Teens and Beyond Symposium

On this Saturday- hear direct from leading lupus specialists--rheumatolgoists, nephrologists, nurses, social workers and lupus patients.


In our nutrition session, for example, we'll discuss how apples and other favorite foods can fight lupus symptoms with every bite.  Delicious, crunchy and highly portable, apples stand up to lupus. On Saturday we'll learn how . . .
