The Lupus Foundation of America recently unveiled the National Resource Center on Lupus as a one-stop resource for those affected by lupus. In doing so, the resource center provides trustworthy, reliable and high-quality resources, programs and emotional support services in relation to this devastating and unpredictable disease.

The content available on the National Resource Center on Lupus is based on 40 years of experience and insights gathered by working closely with world-renowned lupus experts and the lupus community. Information also comes from the Lupus Foundation of America’s National Needs Assessment on Lupus, conducted last year by the Lupus Foundation of America.

Based on the results of this comprehensive study, the Lupus Foundation of America developed more than 600 medically reviewed resources in English and Spanish about all aspects of lupus. Children and teens with lupus will find specialized content created just for them. The resource center also features recipes, personal stories and more. Be sure to look for new content, which will be developed in response to the needs identified and will be added on a regular basis.
