October is National Lupus Awareness Month

Lupus Awareness Month takes place during October in Australia every year. It is an important opportunity to raise awareness of the disease.

Building awareness of lupus is essential to improve early diagnosis and treatment of this unpredictable and misunderstood disease, and ensure that people with lupus are aware of the support and resources available to help them manage the disease.
