MedicAlert Helps Me Thrive While Being An Advocate & Living With The Disease

May is Lupus Awareness Month and online I am known as L.A. Lupus Lady, so I am honored that the MedicAlert Foundation has asked me to share a bit to celebrate World Lupus Day. As a woman who has lived with Lupus for over three decades, I am an advocate who is passionate about a variety of healthcare issues. 

I am personally very concerned that despite advances in healthcare technology I am fighting for access to a comprehensive EMR (Electronic Medical Record) where my team of doctors are connected and that contains all my lab results and medication. 

10 Surprising Facts You May Not Know About Lupus

Lupus Awareness Month creates a time to bring greater understanding about this life altering disease and continues to serve as a universal call-to-action on behalf of the millions of families affected by Lupus. Those fighting this unpredictable disease deserve to be recognized.

While continuing to be a serious global health problem, and despite its severity, most people don’t know much about the condition. Raising awareness is essential to creating a culture of compassion for those affected by Lupus and can help increase funding for potentially life-saving research.
