Lupus Foundation of America, Greater Ohio Chapter Goes Virtual to Continue Its Mission

In response to COVID-19, we’ve decided to postpone all in-person events until further notice. However, the challenge of finding a new normal has only pushed us to adapt to fulfill our mission. Many of our programs and initiatives have gone digital in efforts to keep serving the Ohio lupus community.

Virtual Lupus Summits
The Virtual Lupus Summits are an opportunity to learn from lupus experts from major hospital systems across Ohio. This year’s summits will be hosted via live-streamed webinars. Our expert panels feature leading medical professionals who cover topics requested by local lupus patients and their families. We’re engaging the community in order to inspire patients to take charge and power up with education. Visit for updates on upcoming summits. You can also subscribe to our emails for the latest chapter news.

Other Digital Programs and Resources
Although we’re not meeting in person right now, there are still opportunities to stay educated and connect with other people with lupus. We offer call-in support groups, Web Talks for Young Lupians, Ask the Experts teleconferences, and so much more. Whether you’re newly diagnosed or looking for facts about COVID-19 and lupus, is a hub for resources and updated information. Check our events calendar for upcoming programs and call-in information for support groups. You can also sign up for group notifications, so you don’t miss a chance to call in.
