People with lupus know only too well the need to avoid stress to prevent flares while optimizing emotional and cognitive wellbeing. But that’s pretty hard to do, especially in this time fraught with societal upheaval amid a global pandemic that’s affecting members of this community more severely than most -- people with underlying conditions, people of African American and Hispanic descent, and people with less access to adequate healthcare.
Our Young Leaders Board, a diverse group of young professionals, is presenting a webcast to address this very topic as a continuation of LRA’s Learn From Lupus program.
Moderator: Martin Lewis, LRA Young Leaders Board, Actor, and Lupus Warrior
