Space Still Available for the Lupus Foundation of America's 2008 Advocacy Day: March 10-11, '08

Good morning.

Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was pretty good. Weather here in DC was actually nice over the weekend. Picked up some original movie posters I had framed (I collect them), hung out with some friends, and ... I went to the gym for the first time. I was a little hesitant / self conscious, but then realized no one cared what I was doing, so it was all good. I think this is one resolution I will stick to.

And now to lupus news.

As a reminder, the 2008 Lupus Foundation of America Advocacy Day is fast approaching ... March 10-11, to be exact. By participating, you will join hundreds of lupus advocates from across the United States who will have come together in Washington, DC to take this opportunity to make their voices heard. Advocates will urge Congress to provide more funds for lupus research to find the causes and cure for lupus, and for education and public awareness programs to improve early diagnosis and treatment of the disease.

Registration for the 2008 LFA Advocacy Day is open. Register here for the opportunity to make your voice heard on Capitol Hill.

Sign up to become a lupus e-Advocate to receive updates on how you can participate in Advocacy Day 2008.

Do you want to learn more about the advocacy efforts of the Lupus Foundation of America? Then visit the lupus.org/advocacy Website. If you have any advocacy questions, please contact Sara Chang at chang@lupus.org.

From all of us at the Lupus Foundation of America, we hope to see you on Capitol Hill in March 2008.

Until next time, Wick
