Battling Lupus

The House Committee on Health will hold an informational briefing on Monday, June 23, 2008 to discuss the impact of Lupus in Hawaii.

When: Monday, June 23rd - 10:00 a.m.
Where: State Capitol, Room 329

Lupus is a widespread and chronic autoimmune disease that causes the immune system to attack the body's own tissue and organs. Although there is no known cure for Lupus, we do know that there are genetic factors, environmental triggers and certain types of drugs that can cause Lupus.

The committee will address the services and programs that are available to individuals with Lupus and prospective policies to effectively deal with the disease.

Living with lupus, I can understand totally what it does to your body, let alone your soul.
