Our winter mini-conference promises to be exciting and useful for patients, families and health professionals alike. Maria Dall'Era, M.D., will be headlining our conference. 
Dr. Dall’Era is an Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine and Director of the Rheumatology Clinical Research Center at the University of California, San Francisco.  She is also the Director of the UCSF Lupus Clinic, UCSF Center Director of the Lupus Clinical Trials Consortium (LCTC), and Principal Investigator of the California Lupus Surveillance Project (CLSP).  Her talk will focus on the latest treatment strategies and research studies on lupus and will share significant updates from the Annual Scientific Meeting of the American College of Rheumatology to be held in Washington, D.C. in November.


The conference will also feature other speakers -- experts and patients alike -- on lupus and related topics.  Visit www.lfnc.org for conference program updates.
