Lupus Webchat April 9 Features 'Ask the Doctor' Open Forum
Date:4/8/2008

WASHINGTON, April 8, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) Website, lupus.org, will host an "Ask the Doctor" open forum during its next live Webchat on Wednesday, April 9, beginning at 3:00 p.m. Eastern time.

A diagnosis of lupus is one of the greatest challenges anyone can face. After the diagnosis is made, the first step is to learn as much as possible about the disease. This can be a challenge because there are so many parts of the body that can be affected by lupus -- including the skin, joints, heart, lungs, blood, kidneys, and brain. And the even trickier part is... lupus doesn't affect everyone the same way.

Because of this, the next LFA Live Webchat will be an open forum called "Ask the Doc." Participants can ask the guest speaker, Dr. Bevra Hahn, anything about lupus. The only guideline for this chat is that the questions cannot be specific to a particular individual. The questions must be applicable to a broad range of people affected by lupus. The guest speaker cannot respond questions about a specific case of lupus.

About the Guest Speaker:

Dr. Bevra Hahn is Professor of Medicine, Vice-Chair of the Department of Medicine, and Chief of Rheumatology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California at Los Angeles. Dr. Hahn was recognized for her commitment to lupus research, specifically in the areas of immunosuppressive treatments. Dr. Hahn's research on immunosuppressive treatments for lupus, along with studies from the NIH and other institutions, has formed the firm foundation for the development of current immunosuppressive regimen for lupus.

Dr. Hahn has authored more than 100 peer-reviewed research papers and over 40 book chapters or reviews. She is co-editor of an influential medical textbook, Dubois' Lupus Erythematosus, and a co-author of an LFA guidebook for people with lupus, their families and health professionals. Dr. Hahn is the past-president of the American College of Rheumatology and the 2005 recipient of the prestigious Evelyn V. Hess Lupus Research Award.

The Live Chat will be conducted on the LFA Website, http://www.lupus.org, beginning at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Savings Time.
