AKRON -- The Lupus Foundation of America, Greater Ohio Chapter will host its monthly lupus support group in Akron June 13 at the Summit County Public Library -- Goodyear Branch, 60 Goodyear Blvd., Akron, from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m.
The support group is an open, small-group environment that encourages discussion among lupus patients and their families. It is a place where persons with lupus can share their experiences and ask questions. Most discussions focus on the "how-to's" of living with a chronic illness. It is a safe place for people to learn, share and help.
Individual differences and confidentiality are respected.
