SLE Workshop participants and staff celebrating Dr. Lockshin’s being the first and frequent Workshop presenter, since 1985.
The SLE Workshop is a support and education program ongoing since 1985, for people with lupus and their families and friends. Lectures by lupus care experts are followed by informal discussion.
The program generally meets the fourth Thursday of each month from 12-2pm from September through April in the Richard L. Menschel Education Center on HSS’ 2nd Floor.
A registration process which includes a phone interview is required before your first meeting.
“It took away the veil of mystery of what this disease is about.
“Whatever I can learn from other people with lupus is beneficial to me. It put things in perspective.”
“It allowed me to be a better partner with my doctor and take more responsibility for my body and my healthcare.”
"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
