Looking forward to speaking at tomorrow's LFA DC/MD/VA event in Annapolis, MD! The workshop, entitled "Take Charge and Make a Change", is a multi-topic seminar that will focus on empowering individuals to advocate for themselves on a social and political level to overcome healthcare barriers. I'll be covering the social aspect - how to feel more confident when talking about lupus, and how to prepare yourself for the questions and answers when you say, "I have lupus." (What a loaded statement, right?)
Hope you can join me - my books and Pillbags will also be available for sale. Be sure to come by and say hello!
