An exciting outreach for Lupus patients is coming to Phoenix this month. The Lupus Foundation of America, Inc. (LFA) is hosting a free educational symposium for people with lupus, their families and friends on Saturday, January 21, 2012 in Phoenix, AZ, just two weeks from today. The upcoming educational symposium is very important event for lupus patients in Arizona!
Unfortunately, many local patient resources were lost when the Arizona Chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America, like so many other non-profit organizations, had to close its office due to declining donations in the wake of the economic recession. This symposium will offer helpful information for newly diagnosed patients as well as those who may have lived with lupus for many years.
Sandra Raymond and Joan T. Merrill, M.D. are among the featured speakers who will give the latest information on lupus and an opportunity for dialogue on topics including living with lupus, diet, nutrition and exercise. Many local physicians were recently enlisted to encourage their patients with lupus to attend.
If you would like to attend the Phoenix symposium, click on the flyer above to complete your registration at the Lupus Foundation of America website. You will receive email confirmation from LFA shortly after you send your registration.
Additionally, if you or your doctor have any questions about the symposium, please contact Kristine Hoagland, Director of Network Development at (202) 510-8940 or by email at Hoagland@lupus.org
Maybe I will see YOU there!
