Presented by the Division of Allergy, Immunology and Rheumatology. 

This free symposium to the Rochester community yearly 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. Morning presentations will be live-streamed for participants who would like to join via zoom. We are also excited to bring back the popular break-out sessions and offer “U Pick 2” for our in-person participants this year. We gratefully acknowledge the support from our Lupus Research & Education Endowment Fund that helps provide lupus patient education and outreach.
