We are proud to announce that the 32nd Annual Lupus Europe Convention will be held online from Friday afternoon, September 24th until Sunday, September 26th.
A few weeks ago we asked you what topics you would most like to discuss in the Convention. Your enthusiastic contributions allowed us to design a broad Lupus Europe Exchange with “10 interactive sessions to improve your life with lupus”, based on the topics you chose.
