Do you have lupus or are you interested in learning more about lupus?

The MUSC Division of Rheumatology & Immunology and MUSCLE (MUSC Lupus Erythematosus) Group is planning the first annual Lupus Patient Education Event, entitled "Everything You Need to Know About Lupus!"

The event will be held the morning of Saturday, October 15th at the MUSC Gazes Auditorium at the intersection of Courtenay Drive and Doughty Streets.  Patients, friends, family, healthcare professionals and interested community members are all invited to learn more about lupus and how to help manage this autoimmune disease.

Examples of topics to be covered during the workshop include: Living with Lupus, Understanding Lupus and Finding New Treatments, Lupus and Heart Health, Medication Use During Pregnancy, and Medication Side Effects.  

We will also have information available on the local lupus support group, research and clinical trials, diet and nutrition, the Prescription Assistance Program, disability, oral health (from the Center for Oral Health at MUSC), and bone health including free bone density screening available at the event.

We hope that you will join us.  Please register for the event if you are interested in attending so that we may order a lunch for you!  You may register by completing our online registration form:
