Lupus LA, the West Coast division of the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation, promotes lupus research, awareness, and education, and serves the needs of people with lupus and their families in Los Angeles County.
Lupus LA was founded in 2000 by Daniel Wallace, MD, a renowned physician and author and attending physician in the division of rheumatology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and a clinical professor of medicine at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine. Under his guidance, Lupus LA offers monthly support groups, as well as education programs and workshops throughout Los Angeles County.
Committed to the hope and demonstrated promise of innovative science, Lupus LA partners with the Lupus Research Institute (LRI) to fund novel lupus research that will prevent, treat and cure the complex disease.
With the power of Hollywood and the strength of its volunteer leadership, Lupus LA raises lupus awareness throughout the United States. Its fundraising events harness the might of the media and entertainment industries to spread the word about lupus and its symptoms and dangers, and the need for safe and effective new treatments and a cure.
