Your Child's Team
Your child’s team works to keep your child’s development as healthy as possible. The team may include specialists such as pediatric dermatologists, nephrologists, neurologists, cardiologists, and pulmonologists as well as specialized nurses and social workers.
We Make Specialist Appointments as Convenient as Possible
Often, appointments with nephrology and rheumatology can be scheduled in a single visit.
Monthly Support Groups
We offer monthly support groups for pediatric lupus patients that combine lunch with age-appropriate educational seminars. These allow your child to learn more about their condition, ask questions, and interact with other children who are also learning to live with lupus.
We Understand the Challenges
We offer services to keep your child in school even when they’re actively receiving treatment. Our dedicated social worker can coordinate accommodations that help your child keep up with their schoolwork.
Transition to Adult Care
Lupus is a lifelong disease. When your child is ready to begin seeing an adult rheumatologist, we assist in the transition. This ensures there is no interruption in care, which could lead to a disease flare-up.
