Lupus in Minorities

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, a multi-organ system autoimmune disease, has been shown to affect ethnic minorities more frequently and more severely than other populations. Minorities are 3-4 times more likely to develop SLE and twice as likely to experience severe manifestations such as kidney disease. Finding personalized approaches to treating minority patients starts with quality research. In our talk with Dr. Ashira Blazer, an academic rheumatologist at NYU Langone Hospital, we will explore the presumed causes and contributors to disparities in SLE, future directions in management, and tools to help even the most vulnerable of patients live well.
