The S.L.E. Lupus Foundation, with headquarters and offices in New York City and Los Angeles, is proud to welcome Alan L. Kaye to its national board of directors.
When Los Angeles rheumatologist Daniel J. Wallace, MD, diagnosed Alan and his wife Michelle's daughter with lupus in 2006, their response was to team up with Lupus LA, the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation's West Coast division that is leading lupus awareness in southern California and funding novel research and community outreach services to prevent, treat, and cure the devastating disease of young women.
Kaye brings extensive experience and leadership skills to the board, having served on the California Senate Advisory Commission on Life and Health Insurance and on the board of directors for the Guaranty Bank of California.
Through his company, Alan Kaye Insurance Agency, and as vice president of Barry Kaye Associates, Kaye has consulted with families, business owners, and individuals for over 30 years. The long-time Californian also has led and served on numerous community organizations, from the Beverly Hills Residents' Association to the Cedars-Sinai Hospital Board of Governors and the Maple Counseling Center, a nonprofit mental health organization.
