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 back last year’s popular break-out sessions and offer “U Pick 2” this year.
We gratefully acknowledge the support from our IQ-Lupus Initiative that helps provide lupus patient education and outreach.
