Awareness Today. A Cure Tomorrow.
May is Lupus Awareness Month when we come together, with focused efforts here in Minnesota and across the country, to educate our friends, families and communities about lupus. Raising awareness is key to securing the research dollars needed to move us toward a cure. We know that a greater awareness of lupus and its effects will lead to earlier diagnoses, better treatment and improved quality of life for those living with lupus.
With spring representing a time of renewal and hope, it feels appropriate that spring is also when we announce the two recipients of our Student Research Fellowships. The summer opportunity aims to inspire and cultivate the next generation of researchers dedicated to the lupus cause.
