A Letter from the President
I hope this email finds you well and safe.
I don't know about you, but i think winter is best with a bit of sunshine streaming through my curtains. To me, it means spring is right around the corner. We all know what spring brings - LUPUS AWARENESS MONTH!
We're busy planning activities to increase awareness about lupus and look forward to sharing those ideas with you.
Plus, this year we're celebrating our 50th anniversary! So Lupus Awareness Month should be extra important this year.
Thanks to everyone who has provided their memories of LSI over the years. We are sharing those in communications and online. if you have a memory, a photo or just want to congratulate us, you can do so here.
Today, we share a volunteer's memory courtesy of Anita. If you've been to a Lupus Walk or LSI educational event, you've probably seen her. We're grateful for her memory and we look forward to reading yours!
Our first educational event of the year is coming up in April! The Empowering Lupus Patient Educational Event is back and we're excited about this year's event. All of our live educational events have built in time to allow participants to network. LSI events are a great way to build your lupus network!
One of our presenters at the Empowering Lupus Patient Educational Event, Dr. Irene Blanco, shared an article with us. Be sure to read "The Role of Lupus Patient Support".
Save the Dates for our 2023 Lupus Walks! These fun, family friendly events are sure to be bigger and better this year!
In 50 years, we've come so far. Together, we've made a difference.
