Listen to this discussion about Lupus: The Great Imitator on The Clay Young Show

Until the coronavirus crisis of March 2020, 63% of Americans surveyed knew little or nothing about Lupus.  As a resullt of COVID patients being treated with hydroxychloroquine, (our primary medication) the world began to discuss Lupus and the impact of this drug on patients. As a community, we can join forces to raise awareness and support those living wth lupus.  With increased awareness and advocacy, we can change the trajectory of this disease.  By reciting this pledge, we are leaping forward to improve the health outcomes of people who are impacted by lupus.
