We have brought this free symposium to the Rochester community yearly in order to provide state-of-the-art information to individuals with lupus and their families. It is an interesting time in the world of lupus with many active clinical trials studying new treatment options. We are also excited to bring new break-out sessions to the symposium this year. We gratefully acknowledge the support of the ‘Lupus Education and Research Fund’ generously gifted by the local Lupus Foundation and a grant from the Greater Rochester Health Foundation to provide lupus patient education and outreach.
