The Let’s Talk About Lupus— Hablemos del lupus will help reduce Hispanic/Latino disparities in quality care for lupus by:
- Increasing awareness of lupus and its signs and symptoms among Hispanic consumers, with a particular focus on women between 15 and 44 years of age, a group disproportionately affected by the disease, through trusted national and community based organizations (CBOs) leadership.
- Improving access to services through one-to-one navigation.
- Enhancing quality of care by training professionals in culturally proficient strategies and resources.
