Lupus Awareness Month
Although this past May—Lupus Awareness Month—wasn’t quite like others, the LRA has initiated efforts for people with lupus to connect. To help our community cope with the effects of COVID-19 in May and beyond, the LRA has unveiled a series of enlighteningly educational videos hosted by Shayla Shorter, PhD.
The Learning from Lupus series is now available on the LRA’s website and YouTube channel.
Forum for Discovery
In the era of COVID-19, the LRA is working hard at keeping every aspect of every vital initiative on track. That’s why our Forum for Discovery—our collaborative scientific meeting—will be presented virtually on October 27, 2020. This invaluable meeting gives LRA-funded researchers the opportunity to share important discoveries made through their research.
Staying Connected: Lupus and COVID-19
- What parallels exist in the overreactive immune response seen in lupus and COVID-19?
- Are people with lupus more or less at risk for COVID-19?
- Are medications used by people with lupus more or less effective in COVID-19?
These are just a few of the questions that were answered in the LRA’s live webcast Lupus and COVID-19: What You Need to Know on May 21. If you couldn’t attend—or want to hear it again—go to our website www.lupusresearch.org.
