We all know that systemic lupus erythematosus disproportionately impacts women and racial and ethnic minorities. We also know that people of lower socioeconomic status are often diagnosed later and have poorer outcomes after diagnosis. The groups that are genetically at greater risk for SLE, namely women and minorities, are also more likely to be poor and uninsured.
