May is Lupus Awareness Month

Lupus is an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation and tissue damage to virtually any organ system in the body. Symptoms of lupus may include joint pain and swelling, fever, debilitating fatigue, skin rash, kidney problems, anemia, chest pains, strokes, seizures and sun sensitivity.

Join the global effort to:

• Educate physicians, patients and the public about lupus

• Increase funding for lupus research

• Establish lupus as a significant public health issue worldwide

Can you name the organ systems in your body??
