What Women of Color Must Know About Lupus

Two studies set out to learn more about how lupus affects each racial group

Two  studies looked at systemic lupus erythematosus, the most common type of lupus, in different ways. One study by The Manhattan Lupus Surveillance Program observed women in the Manhattan area for two years. And study number two examined people with lupus who were enrolled in Medicaid between the years 2000 and 2010 in 29 different states.

Though different, both studies had one goal in mind: to find out how lupus affected different racial groups.
