You can make a difference in educating the public about lupus.
By accessing and using our “What You Need to Know about Lupus” materials below to educate, you can make a difference for those affected by lupus and those who need to see a healthcare professional to be diagnosed. The information provided in the toolkit will help individuals recognize the signs and symptoms of lupus, encourage them to connect with health care providers who are knowledgeable about lupus, educate about clinical research, and support individuals to care for themselves or a loved one.
The presentation is the centerpiece of the below toolkit. You can give the presentation yourself or use the below video, also available on YouTube, recorded by a person with lupus. Download each component by clicking on the link or get all the files at once in the zip file. Once you have the files downloaded, start by reviewing the Community Presentation Guide.
The Lupus Research Alliance developed the presentation in consultation with the National Minority Quality Forum, a non-profit charged with helping to “eliminate the disproportionate burden of premature death and preventable illness for racial and ethnic minorities and other special populations.
