Alex to speak on lupus, self-care, & joy in healing at the Peninsula Lupus & Fibro Support Group in September

On Saturday, September 22nd, Alex is returning to the hospital where he was diagnosed and hospitalized with lupus as the featured speaker at Social Butterflies Peninsula Lupus Support Group‘s monthly meeting. He will be discussing his family’s lupus journey, self-care & mental/emotional wellness for folks with lupus and their communities, and the importance of joy in healing. Aaaaand he’ll talk about how all of that lead to GetSomeJoy.

Good times.

If you’re Hampton Roads, join Alex, other folks living with autoimmune diseases, and their communities at Sentara Careplex Hospital at 3000 Coliseum Drive, Conference Room D, in Hampton, VA 23666.
