I'm really pleased to announce that an important research paper produced collaboratively with this online community has been published! A great way to end Lupus Awareness Month 2020.
The paper "‘But you don’t look sick’: a qualitative analysis of the LUPUS UK online forum" was produced by the fantastic MelanieSloan and regular contributors to this site.
The research wonderfully encapsulates the experiences of people with lupus and associated conditions and we hope it will raise awareness of the impact living with the disease can have. Importantly it also emphasises the role of community support groups - something which is demonstrated excellently on this site.
