Hey Everybody!

A Live Web Chat
Environmental Factors in Lupus
Wednesday, January 31
3:00 p.m. Eastern

The Lupus Foundation of America is proud to present a series of live moderated chats featuring the nation's leading experts on lupus. This is your opportunity to ask a question and learn more about lupus from scientific thought leaders from a number of medical disciplines.

Our next chat will feature Dr. Mark Gourley. Dr. Gourley is a rheumatologist and a member of the LFA Medical-Scientific Advisory Council. He is with the Environmental Autoimmunity Group (EAG) at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, in Bethesda, Maryland. The EAG's function is to investigate the environment's role in autoimmunity in both children and adults. Lupus is one autoimmune illness that is under active investigation.

Please enter a nickname in the log-in box that will appear on the page and then click on Connect. Once you log in, it may take a few moments for the chat window to open.
