BC Lupus Society
The Lupus Society is the only BC organization dedicated solely to providing lupus education and support services. They are committed to sponsoring research and providing hope for those affected by lupus. The Lupus Society sponsors and assists in the development of location support groups and provides access to literature on lupus and coping with this chronic illness. The Society also organizes education meetings and seminars where medical and professional resource people discuss all aspects of lupus including new trends in research.
During 2015, GSK funded the BC Lupus Society with $11,000 to sponsor the 26th Annual Lupus and Wellness Symposium.
GSK’s contributions represent approximately 5.0% of the organization’s total revenue for 2015.
