    Thumbs up Have Lupus? There's an App for that...

    A recent news article applauds the Lupus Foundation of America for donating $23 million dollars to researchers across the US conducting studies which will "fill in the gaps" on needed Lupus research. My favorite one?

    "Creation of a Mobile Application to Support Self-Management"

    This is the Lucy Vodden Research Grant Award, established by the Lupus Foundation of America and Julian Lennon. This research aims to develop a mobile application to help young people with lupus to manage their own care, improve tracking of symptoms, and improve the quality of communications with their treating team.

    I saw that this was an older thread. Apparently there are now a few different "apps" available on the android market if anyone is interested. Not sure what iPhones have available to them. I have not tried any. Just looked it up after reading this thread cuz I was curious.
