Celebrating World Lupus Day

As World Lupus Day approaches on May 10th, LupUs Together NJ is gearing up to shine a light on this important day dedicated to raising awareness about lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease affecting millions worldwide. This occasion serves as a poignant reminder of the ongoing challenges faced by those living with lupus and the pressing need for increased support, education, and advocacy.

The History of World Lupus Day

World Lupus Day was first established in 2004 by lupus organizations from around the globe, including the World Lupus Federation, to bring attention to the impact of lupus on individuals and families worldwide. This initiative was born out of a desire to enhance public understanding of the disease, promote earlier diagnosis and treatment, and rally support for ongoing research efforts. Since then, World Lupus Day has grown into an annual event observed by lupus organizations, healthcare professionals, and individuals affected by lupus worldwide.
