The Louisiana Lupus Foundation invites everyone living with lupus in the state to participate in a needs survey and virtual support group. The needs survey, which is confidential, is available online at www.louisianalupusfoundation.org/survey or at https://forms.gle/zoS1gf2v7L3hqjK39.
Results will be used to adjust programs and levels of support to people living with lupus as the community prevents the spread of COVID19. Surveys should be completed before the virtual support group meeting on Saturday, April 25 at 12:30pm. The meeting will be conducted through Zoom.com in meeting ID 745-171-568.
LLF is a charitable, nonprofit focused on supporting people impacted by lupus, an chronic, incurable autoimmune disease. The local organization as well as lupus groups around the world are working to ensure lupus patients can continue to have access to hydroxychloroquine, a critical medication that they need which have been delayed due to it being prescribed for COVID patients. The novel coronavirus can have a deadly impact on these patients whose bodies are already under attack.
The support group meets monthly and anyone living with lupus are encouraged to attend.
