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.
