TODAY more than 50 patient advocates from the Alliance for Lupus Research and Lupus Research Institute are meeting with members of Congress to educate U.S. legislators about lupus. You can help make them listen to the needs of lupus patients without ever leaving home.
50 can turn into 50,000 when virtual advocates take action and spread the word to make our collective voice even stronger and louder. Join us as a #LupusEAdvocate -- use the power of the internet and telephone to help sound the call for improved care for people with lupus through better access to existing medications today and federal funding for research to deliver safer and more effective medications tomorrow.
How You Can Help This Week
