Our Mission

The Lupus Society of Illinois promotes lupus awareness and complements the work of health care professionals by providing personalized resources for the lupus community while supporting research.
Lupus Awareness Month 

Lupus Awareness Month is the time of year when the lupus community takes time to educate their families, workplaces and neighborhoods about lupus.  Education can be as modest as sending an email lupus information to your friends and family or organizing a Lupus Awareness Day at your office.  We encourage you to get creative as you raise awareness about this often misunderstood disease.

Join LSI as we Fight for Lupus!

LSI has activities, flyers, posters, stickers and more to make this the best Lupus Awareness Month ever! 

NEW THIS YEAR
LSI created a slide for elevators in office or apartment buildings!  See if your office can promote lupus awareness!

Take an "I fight for lupus because" selfie and post it to social media using the hashtag #LSILupusAwareness and you could win an excellent prize! (here's the sign)

On May 21st, join the Educational Teleconference on Lupus & Bone Health presented by Dr. Robert Katz. (register here)

Lupus Awareness Month Highlights 

Thanks to everyone who has contacted LSI for lupus awareness items and educational materials!

Here are a few highlights:

Lupus is the cause of the month for DCFS.  This office building on Chicago's South Side is all about lupus awareness for the month of May.  Each of the building's 10 floors will have a Lupus Awareness Month poster and educational material will be available as well.  On May 20th, LSI will present a Lunch and Learn on site and invite the entire building of about 500 to attend.

LSI and the Southern Suburbs Walk Committee have been invited to host a table at St. James Hospital for the first two weeks of May.  The table will include a Lupus Awareness Month poster, educational materials, support group flyer and Walk information.  Thanks to Tawny Smith and Kanefus Walker for making this possible!

Dr. Ramsey-Goldman's office at Northwestern is displaying 2 Lupus Awareness Month posters and making educational information available.

Dr. Jolly and her entire team at the Rush Lupus Clinic have participated in the "I fight for lupus because" social media campaign and will answer lupus questions on Facebook throughout the month.
