Increasing lupus awareness within high-risk groups, specifically the African-American and Hispanic communities, is a primary goal of the Foundation. Volunteers could contact church and community groups, distribute literature, and arrange for speakers to make presentations at their meetings. We also need bi-lingual help in so many areas.
In order for people to receive the benefits of our collective work, they have to know we exist. If you have oral and written communication skills, we could use your help in getting the word out about lupus and the resources that are available to patients, their families, and the medical community.
There are many areas in Georgia that are without support groups, or in need of new leaders. Let us train you on how to start a Support Group in your area. If you would like to form a support group in your area, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
