Cruel Mystery Tour - LFA getting lupus some serious attention!
Posted Nov 28 2012 8:00am
Looks like the Lupus Foundation of America is stepping it up when it comes to lupus awareness!
The LFA has just launched a national program that will literally tour the country , in a 45 foot bus covered in lupus facts, featuring eight interactive exhibits and displays where visitors can experience what it is like to face lupus. This bus is sure to provide the much needed lupus information and education to people around the nation. Here's a description of what they're doing:
"The Help Us Solve the Cruel Mystery™ National Tour is a national education and awareness program launched by the Lupus Foundation of America to address this urgent national public health issue. This first-of-its-kind program includes a tour bus with interactive exhibits to help you learn about lupus through the experiences of people who live with lupus. It also includes an education program for people with lupus and their families, and a state-of-the-science continuing medical education (CME) program for healthcare professionals. Register for an event and click here to find a city near you! "
