Date:9/11/2008

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Vasculitis Foundation (VF), the leading organization supporting early diagnosis, cutting-edge treatment and a cure for all types of vasculitis, is taking its advocacy and education efforts to the web with the announcement of its first-ever webinar, Monday, September 22, 12:30 - 1:30PM EDT.

The VF webinar will provide easily accessible information about vasculitis to the medical community and to those living with and/or affected by this family of rare life-threatening diseases.

"Extending the use of this technology to patient outreach and education is not just exciting, it will save lives," said Catherine Keane, VF President. "It's very difficult for patients with rare diseases like vasculitis to find physicians who have diagnosed and treated their illnesses. This webinar gives patients the opportunity to learn from some of the world's leading vasculitis experts."

The 60-minute webinar will feature recognized medical professionals who will define and discuss what vasculitis is and the best treatment practices. Presenters include: Dr. Carol Langford, Director of Cleveland Clinic's Center for Vasculitis Care and Research; Dr. Peter Merkel, Director of Boston University's Vasculitis Center; and Dr. Ulrich Specks from the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the Mayo Clinic.

Patients suffering from conditions associated with vasculitis, family and friends of patients, the medical community and members of media are invited to join in the Vasculitis Foundation's informative new webinar, which promises to educate and enlighten participants about this family of rare diseases.
