Each year, funds for lupus research and programs of education and outreach continue to be slashed in the PA Department of Health’s budget. You, your friends, and family are asked to join advocates from around the Commonwealth to meet with your state legislators to urge them to restore funding in the budget to fight lupus. Join us to…
- Learn more about the resources provided throughout the state;
- Share your needs with us;
- Most importantly…Make noise for lupus by meeting with your State Senator and Representative and let them know that lupus matters to you and ask for their help in the fight against lupus.
Whether you are already part of helping solve the cruel mystery of lupus or looking to get involved, this is your opportunity to help rally support, educate our leaders in the state and provide new hope to those living with lupus.
