A lupus awareness and educational program from the American College of Rheumatology

Building on evidence-based approaches

LEADR’s community-driven health equity model is a unique way to address the complex, multi-faceted problem of a lack of provider-issued physical activity recommendations and adherence among African American women and Latinas with lupus.

What is LEADR and How Can It Help with Lupus Management?

The Lupus Engagement through Activity and Digital Resources (LEADR) intervention implements a digital health coaching program to increase physical activity among African American women and Latinas with lupus. LEADR uses a culturally and linguistically appropriate digital coaching program to increase physical activity among lupus patients as a powerful self-management tool. Our focus area is Georgia.

Target Audience

African American or Black and Hispanic or Latina women with Lupus

Evaluating Digital Health Coaching for Lupus Management
