Walk for Lupus Now Events / Upcoming Patient Education Event in Detroit, Michigan

Morning everyone ... I think spring has finally arrived here in DC. Going to the high 60s / low 70s today and tomorrow.

I'm glad tomorrow will be nice because it's the 3rd annual Walk for Lupus Now event in DC, which will benefit the Lupus Foundation of America, Greater Washington Chapter. I am a team captain, and my team is called The LuperHeroes.

We also have a Walk for Lupus Now event in Raleigh, North Carolina this Sunday, April 19. If you live in the area, and can make it, please do.

If you're in the Detroit, Michigan area, I wanted to tell you about an upcoming patient education seminar.
