Happy Valentines Day!
Thanks to the presenters at last weekends Empowering Lupus Patients Educational Event. About 60 participants took part in the event that included a discussion about research a presentation on Aromatherapy and an instructional talk from a Laughologist! Like all of our educational events, you can download the presentations and/or handouts from our website or from the article below.
Our next educational event will be "Lupus Update with Dr. Rosalind Ramsey Goldman" presented via web meeting on Thursday, April 18, 2019. Registration is FREE and REQUIRED to obtain the access code. We hope you'll be able to join us.
Congratulations are also in order for the RUSH Lupus Support Group that celebrated its one year anniversary last Saturday! Thanks to the support group leader LaShon who has dedicated so much time and energy into making this group a success! All of our support group leaders are volunteers and their commitment and dedication is inspiring. Thanks to all of them!
Whenever we talk about our programs and services, we have to discuss our Illinois Lupus Walks - because we simply couldn't provide the programs and services without the success of these events. Our Walks are fun and full of friendly people. Besides being an important fundraiser they are also awareness builders! Many in the lupus community first hear about us from the Illinois Lupus Walks and then benefit from our free programs and services. If you haven't been to an Illinois Lupus Walk, we hope to see you there and if you have, now's the time to register for 2019! You can find out more here.
Our Bank of America Chicago Marathon team is another way to raise awareness about lupus while raising funds to support our programs. Our team is filling up and we have some guaranteed spots left - but they go on a first come first serve basis. To find out more about the program or to sign up visit our event page here or contact Liz at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 312-542-0006.
Thank you for your continued support - we look forward to seeing you at an upcoming LSI activity!
Together we make a difference.
