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 emailing lupus information to your friends and family or as grand as organizing a Lupus Awareness Day at your office.  We encourage you to get creative as you raise awareness about this often misunderstood disease.
