Lupus Foundation of America Expands Reach to Meet Growing Need for Support Services

The Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) DC/MD/VA Chapter’s merger with Lupus Mid-Atlantic is an example of the efforts being undertaken by the LFA and its chapters to expand and strengthen its national network in order to provide support services to all those affected by lupus. The merger will also add new voices to the LFA’s thousands of lupus advocates across the country who are speaking out on a national and local level for increased support for lupus research and education programs.

The LFA congratulates the LFA, DC/MD/VA Chapter on the merger, which will expand local support services throughout the entire tri-state area, including the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Northern and Central Virginia regions. The LFA’s national affiliated network has a shared mission and vision, and prides itself on offering a level of service that is consistent and meets the organization’s high standards.

As a former LFA NJ member, currently living in Maryland, I too applaud this change and hope and believe it will benefit people living with lupus in Maryland.
