Lupus is more prevalent in this country than AIDS,

sickle cell anemia, cerebral palsy and cystic fibrosis.

It is the least known of all major diseases.

The Lupus Foundation of America estimates that 1.5 million Americans, and at least five million people worldwide, have a form of lupus. Disproportionately, Lupus is two to three times more prevalent among women of color than among Caucasian women. Understanding this disease and increasing the awareness of the impacted populations will support providers in creating better health outcomes. 

This series is offered in partnership with Southwestern Colorado Area Health Education Center (SWCAHEC) with the support of the American College of Rheumatology and ECHO Colorado. The overarching goal of this ECHO series is for primary care providers and nurses to build connections between healthcare providers and rheumatologists in communities underserved by specialists. This free, four-week series focuses on increasing awareness for appropriate screening, facilitating and expediting diagnosis,  appropriate referral of patients and supporting providers to treat and monitor patients.
