A Letter from the President
I hope this email finds you well and safe.
The great news is that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is approved and rolled out and the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is in front of the FDA for approval. There are several other vaccines in development. The most important question - are any of these vaccines safe for people with lupus?
Dr. Katz wrote an article on that for us - you can see it in this newsletter and on our website here.
And Dr. Hassan from RUSH presented on "Getting to Know COVID-19 from a Socially Safe Distance" at the 4th Annual RUSH Lupus Clinic & LSI Educational event on December 5, 2020. Dr. Hassan's presentation was one of 4 topics that day. The events were recorded and you can see the presentations below, on our website or our YouTube page.
We are only able to provide these free educational events thanks to the generosity of our donors and sponsors.
With the vaccine development, I think it's safe to say that 2020 is going out on a high note. I'm very glad that it is coming to an end and looking forward to seeing everyone at events that are bound to happen.
Great signs that life is returning to normal are the upcoming Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle and Chicago Marathon. LSI has teams in both again this year!
You can see below for more information or email email@example.com.
Both of these events are fun and inspiring ways to increase awareness about lupus. Our teams always consist of warm and wonderful people on a mission to increase lupus awareness and raise funds for the LSI.
We also want to thank the LSI Associate Board for their commitment to our mission and their successful restaurant fundraisers on December 4th and 6th. What a caring and generous group - we are lucky to have you!
As you plan your end of year giving, we ask that you remember LSI.
Together we make a difference.
