Lupus LA is pleased to present its second pediatric support group in conjunction with the Childrens Hospital of Los Angeles starting on Wednesday, September 9, 2009. Over the course of six weeks, parents and children will tackle a different topic that will help them cope with the challenges of managing a chronic disease. Both kids and parents will have the opportunity to ask questions of guest speakers including doctors, young adults who have managed the disease for several years and other parents. Childcare for siblings will also be provided.
Space in the group is limited. To participate, please email or call Elyse Reyes at firstname.lastname@example.org or 310-657-5667.
