Chairmen’s Welcome

Dear Friends and Colleagues

On behalf of the Lupus Academy Steering Committee we are delighted to welcome you to the Lupus Academy website, your gateway to information about lupus and our activities. Following many successful CME-accredited meetings, which have taken place since 2012, registration for our next 6th Annual Meeting in Portugal, 5-7th May 2017 is open.

The Lupus Academy’s educational activities are funded by multiple financial supporters and educational partners, to whom we are grateful in enabling us to provide the Lupus community with the education needed to continually improve patient outcomes. Being completely independent and at arm’s length from any commercial supporter, the Lupus Academy is always keen to have more leading companies sharing and supporting our vision for providing best-in-class education for those practicing in the field of lupus. We are most grateful for the financial support we have received to date, and look forward to welcoming other supporters to help us to fulfil our vision of providing high quality educational programmes to our community and supporting improvement in patient outcomes.

We sincerely hope that you will be able to join us in Portugal for what we hope will be a unique and valuable learning experience that will enrich clinical practice in the field of Lupus.

With kind regards,

Professor Munther Khamashta
