SLE Workshop

"I almost didn't go to the SLE Workshop on beauty make-overs. But I'm so glad I did. It helped me feel confident and find my inner beauty again". -Tijuana Murray


What: This monthly Support and Education group for people with lupus and their family and friends has been ongoing since 1985. Come for one meeting - or come every month. Lectures by lupus care experts are followed by informal discussion.

When: Meets the fourth Thursday of each month from 12 to 2 pm from September through April in the Richard Menschel Conference Center at HSS. Call the Workshop Coordinator to learn more, and to join our mailing list.
