New Year's Resolutions & Lupus: The Wed., January 9, '08 Webchat at the Lupus Foundation of America

Good morning all ... wanted to give you a quick reminder about the Lupus Foundation of America's January Webchat.

Next Wednesday, January 9 at 3 p.m. Eastern Time, Dr. Tammy Utset, from the University of Chicago, will host a Webchat on New Year's Resolutions & Lupus. Specifically, the focus of the chat will be on the best ways to stay healthy -- and exercise -- when you have lupus.

Dr. Utset attended the University of Virginia, graduating with a B.A. in Biology summa cum laude and then attended Yale University School of Medicine. At Yale, her senior thesis focused on lupus research in the laboratory of Dr. Joseph Craft, and she was awarded the Harry Lamport Biomedical Research Prize. After residency in Philadelphia, she was accepted by Johns Hopkins for her Rheumatology Fellowship program, and remained at Johns Hopkins to complete a Masters in Public Health in 1993.

Currently, Dr. Utset is collaborating in translational research projects on lupus nephritis and autoantibody production in lupus. As Rheumatology Fellowship Program Director at the University of Chicago, she trains and inspires the next generation of rheumatologists to pursue careers focused on lupus care and research.

You can submit a question in advance to Dr. Utset.

We hope you can join us for next Wednesday’s Webchat.

REMINDER: The December 2007 Webchat with Dr. Peter Chira -- on the topic of teens & lupus -- has been rescheduled for Wednesday, January 23, 2008.

Until next time, Wick
