Lupus has greater impact on minority women

An expert panel in New York discussed the urgent requirement for greater education and research into the fact that minority women are more likely to get lupus than others. Also, minority groups tend to suffer from earlier onset, more severe symptoms and later diagnosis. The President of the New York Health and Hospitals Corporation also highlighted the need to give lupus greater attention as a threatening disease against women. Considering the number of sufferers, there is little awareness and research about the disease.
