To serve, educate, and find the cause and cure for those affected by lupus.
The purpose of the Alliance is to:
Provide information, education and referral for those affected by lupus and to promote the development and enhancement of health and social welfare services at the local level to assist individuals suffering from lupus;
Promote public education to increase knowledge and understanding of the disease and its ramifications;
Encourage support of research programs related to the diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of lupus;
Promote the exchange of information among health professionals and collaborate with the professional community to improve the standards of diagnosis, care and treatment of those affected by lupus.
For almost fifty years the Lupus Alliance has been fighting to not only cure lupus but to do what they can to improve the lives of people with lupus!! Our Walk Along for Lupus, currently in its 11th Year, is the most successful lupus walk in the country, last year raising over $220,000. Our walk is the only one on Long Island that not only benefits research but individuals with lupus as well!!
