LFA's "Medication" Webchat to be Held Wednesday, December 9 at 3 p.m. Eastern

Reminder -- the Lupus Foundation of America's next webchat is Wednesday afternoon, December 9, at 3 p.m. Eastern Time.

The LFA welcomes Dr. Graciela S. Alarcón, who will serve as the guest expert for the "Medication" webchat.

This is your opportunity to ask questions and learn from an expert. Dr. Alarcón is currently the Jane Knight Lowe Chair of Medicine in Rheumatology. She joined the Division of Clinical Immunology and Rheumatology at UAB in 1980 as a Research Fellow under the sponsorship of the American College of Physicians after having spent seven plus years as a Faculty member at Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia in Lima, Perú. While in Perú she developed and organized the first Rheumatology Unit and the first clinical training program in Rheumatology. During her UAB fellowship she received a Traveling Award and a Senior Rheumatology Fellows Award, both from the American College of Rheumatology. In 1981 she joined the Faculty, ascending rapidly through the ranks; she became a professor in 1988, an endowed professor in 1998 and an endowed chair in 2001.

You can submit a question in advance here.

We hope you can join us Wednesday afternoon, December 9. To do so, you can log in to the live chat here.

As always, copies of all chat transcripts are posted online within a day or 2 of the chat. Follow this link to read LFA's previous chat transcripts.
