Learn. Connect. Advocate.
Each March, lupus advocates join together at the Summit to share their stories with Congress in hope to support policies to increase funding for lupus research. Every year I have seen posts about the National Lupus Summit and was bummed I couldn’t go, either not healthy enough or couldn’t afford it. This year though the Lupus Foundation has decided to make it digital so I’m thrilled to be able to witness what goes on during the Summit. On Monday, March 16 will be the first ever digital summit open to the entire lupus community. You will be able to connect to fellow advocates, learn from experts in the lupus community, and meet partners in the fight against lupus – all online!
