The Lupus Research Alliance is active at the federal and state levels to make sure the needs of lupus patients are understood by our legislators and well represented in health policies and programs. We advocate for the best interests of the lupus community, especially for investments in lupus-related biomedical research and health care access.
An advocate can also be a patient, family member, friend, caregiver, or anyone who cares about people with lupus. As an advocate, you can help by:
• Calling or writing for increased funding of lupus research
• Creating awareness of lupus through education and by sharing your story
• Supporting initiatives to make sure people with lupus have access to appropriate medical care
