Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) February 16, 2012
Saturday, February 25, 2012 Lupus International will host the Lupus Tweens, Teens and Beyond Symposium at the UCLA Medical Center for lupus patients and their loved ones.
Why attend this seminar? Patients and their families often read medical articles or news releases announcing new findings--often in technical medical terminology. Many find this discouraging and difficult to understand how it pertains to them. This seminar will provide an opportunity to meet leading researchers such as, Dr. Bevra Hahn Chief of Rheumatology UCLA. Presenters will provide the latest information and offer a Q&A segment following the morning/afternoon sessions.
Unique to this symposium will be an opportunity to meet lupus patients, some who were diagnosed as children, and learn how they have coped. Topics to be covered include, update lupus research, adult and pediatric care, organ involvement, osteoporosis, bone density, nutrition and social issues.
Lupus International is proud to feature leading researchers and clinicians to discuss current trends in treatment of lupus. Improving your eating habits, adding mild exercise, monitoring blood pressure and bone density may feel overwhelming. This seminar will provide a means to incorporate these suggestions into your every day life.
Take the opportunity to hear internationally renowned physicians and researchers. Seating is limited, so reserve your place today via email.
