15 Questions with Dr. Peter Chira - Back to School with Lupus

Back-to-school time can be quite stressful for both kids and parents – new teachers, new schedules, or even a new school. For those with lupus, it could be even more demanding. Join us this month as we invite you to submit back to school questions to Dr. Peter Chira.

Peter Chira, M.D., M.S., is an instructor of pediatric rheumatology at Stanford University School of Medicine and practices at Lucille Packard Children's Hospital. His research interests focus on improving the transition and educational process for adolescents with rheumatic diseases, including those systemic lupus erythematosus, and evaluating the role of information technology in this transition.

Submit your questions to Dr. Chira by September 7. Answers will be posted to the LFA website by September 20.
