With the theme "Taking Charge and Feeling Better," the May 16 Symposium will offer a half-day session with workshops on wellness issues (nutrition and exercise); fertility and pregnancy; the long-term effects of lupus and medications; lupus in men; living well with a chronic illness and support sessions for families and men.
