Welcome to The Lupus Initiative®

The Lupus Initiative® is a national education program designed to reduce health disparities experienced by patients with lupus.  We develop educational resources for students and practitioners of medicine and the health professions – CME activities, case studies, a curriculum on lupus and health disparities, communication tools and more – to assist and support them in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of patients disproportionately affected by lupus based on race, ethnicity, and gender.

You are invited to explore our website and access all of our FREE resources. 

We offer free patient and provider resources. You are encouraged to use them as you see fit. We hope these tools and resources will assist you in learning more about how you can address the persistent gaps between the lupus-related health status of minorities and non-minorities, women and men, and those above and below the poverty line.
