The Lupus Foundation of America has announced the new dates in the 2012 – Lupus: Learn from the Experts series educational seminars about living with lupus. In 2011, this series of online seminars featured several outstanding speakers from among the world’s leading lupus experts and provided much-needed education about lupus.
The new 2012 seminars are in webinar format, and continue with free access for viewers participating from their home computers, and include seven new topics selected after LFA reviewed participants’ feedback. This year’s seminars will be a “must see” item for anyone with lupus, for their families, caregivers and loved ones.
These seven dates are going right onto my calendar this week! I recommend them to anyone else who has an interest in learning more about these important lupus-related topics, right from the real experts:
