Although lupus can strike anyone, incidence of this disease is highest in African-American, Latino, and Asian women, most often in their childbearing years. To ensure that all women have access to the best care available, the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation offers several programs to address multicultural needs.
The Lupus Cooperative of New York (LCNY) offers services in Spanish and English in underserved neighborhoods throughout Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Northern Manhattan. Also, the LCNY provides referrals to several other support programs offered throughout New York.
