Lupus Under the Spotlight: U.S. Congress Shows Support for Women's Health Issues
Date:5/12/2008

dically underserved portion of America's population. It is vital that American women are aware of diseases more common in women, take care of their health, and talk to their doctors about symptoms that might be part of a more serious condition," says ALR's Scientific Advisory Board Chair, Dr. Mary K. Crow. "Lupus can cause heart and kidney disease - two leading causes of death for women - so we are grateful to our Members of Congress for shining a light on this important issue."

The Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR) is a national voluntary health organization based in New York City and founded in 1999. Chaired by Robert Wood Johnson IV, it has become the world's largest private source of lupus research funds and has committed $50 million to lupus-specific research projects since its inception. The organization's mission is to find better treatments and ultimately prevent and cure lupus by supporting medical research. Because the ALR's Board of Directors pays for all administrative and fundraising costs, 100% of all donations go directly to support lupus research programs.
