Learning Tools

The Lupus Initiative® is dedicated to providing tools and resources for educators and students that increase awareness of lupus and the associated health disparities.  TLI’s robust offering includes power point slides, videos, interactive case studies, and more. Browse the tools by category, or scan sample presentations.

This educational resource on lupus and health disparities was developed and produced by The Lupus Initiative in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Minority Health, The Lupus Initiative Consortium and a host of experts in rheumatology, health disparities and lupus research – many of whom are named below. Others, not named here, and members of The Lupus Initiative Consortium, provided feedback at every stage of development which was integral to the quality of these materials. We hope you will use and share them liberally.
