Currently, more than 1.5 million Americans live with lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease that causes pain and inflammation in various parts of the body. The Lupus Foundation of America works to advance research and improve the quality of life for individuals living with lupus through resources such as LupusConnect. An easy to use online platform, LupusConnect unites a community of people with lupus and their loved ones in their desire to provide support and share practical information.
The free resource offers 24/7 access to conversations on a broad range of lupus-related topics, from recognizing signs and symptoms of the condition to parenting a child with lupus. People can also direct message other members of the forum to engage in private conversations.
