Lupus Foundation Holding Virtual Fall Lupus Summit

Posted on October 29, 2020

BRECKSVILLE, Ohio (Oct. 29, 2020) —The Lupus Foundation of America, Greater Ohio Chapter (LFA, GOC) is hosting the Virtual Fall Lupus Summit on Saturday, Nov. 14, 2020, from 10 a.m. – noon.

This free webinar will feature a lupus expert panel, who will share the latest lupus insights and answer audience questions.

This summit gives lupus patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals the opportunity to explore hot topics in the world of lupus. Presentations include “Lupus & Hair”, “Lupus & Vaccines”, “New Tools & Website” (GSK), and “Labwork & Pain Management”, —the latter of which will also discuss medical cannabis. The lupus expert panel features MetroHealth doctors Katherine Nolan Lu, MD, Stanley Ballou, MD, and Maria Antonelli, MD, as well as GSK Patient Liaison, Cindy Fiske RN, BSN.

“We often get questions about things like hair changes or which vaccines to get,” said Leslie Tierney, LFA, GOC vice president of operations. “It’s important that people have credible answers to these questions while also diving into the topics with experts. We want people to have the knowledge and tools to thrive in every aspect of lupus,” said Tierney.

Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects 60,000 Ohioans. Although there is currently no known cause or cure, there are ways to improve the quality of life for people living with this cruel and mysterious disease.
