May: A Month of Activities!
As May is Lupus Awareness Month, it’s no surprise that lupus events and activities abound. It’s a busy month for me personally – with shows, symposiums, house stuff, and Pillbags – but I hope to make time for most of these. I hope you can, too!
I’m particularly excited about the upcoming workshop my sister, Katie Rice, of Grow Career Coaching, is putting on. If you’re in the D.C./Northern Virginia area, I invite you to come out for what is sure to be an evening of enlightenment. Details included below - can you tell I’m playing favorites?
May 2nd – Thursday: LFA Indiana Chapter Living with Lupus Symposium, Crown Point, Indiana, 4-8pm. I flew out on Wednesday, and am now rested and ready for my presentation today at 4pm. See you there!
May 4th – Saturday: LFA DC/Maryland/VA Chapter Annual Summit, George Washington Hospital, Washington D.C., 9am – 3pm. My pillbags are packed and ready for the event – look for a table of fun, fashionable pillbags, and that will be me! (My equally-as-stylish book will be available, too.)
May 14th – Tuesday: Facebook chat on the topic of “Lupus and General Health” hosted by Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC, in conjunction with the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation, online from 5:30 – 6:30 pm EST. To join, visit the HSS Facebook page, “Like” the page and join the conversation.
ALSO on May 14th: "Your Hidden Potential: Discover Talents You Never Knew You Had", The Lyceum, Old Town Alexandria, 7:30-9pm. Click here for details and to purchase tickets. It's sure to be a great seminar!!
