  • Overview

    Did you know that African Americans are three times as likely to be diagnosed with lupus than other demographic groups? To make matters worse, being diagnosed with lupus doubles their risk of kidney disease, stroke, and heart attacks.

    To address this growing health threat among African Americans, Dr. Jennifer Caudle is joined by Dr. Ashira Blazer, Instructor in the Department of Medicine and Rheumatologist at NYU Langone Health, to discuss diagnosis, comorbidities, and various treatment options for your lupus patients.

    Correction Note: Dr. Blazer has updated that in the U.S., variation homozygosity for APOL1 is present in 13% of the African American population.
