A National Public Health Agenda for Lupus: Results of the Two-Day Planning Conference
In March 2015, NACDD and the Lupus Foundation of America convened over 50 experts in public heath and lupus for a one and one-half day conference to develop recommendations for A National Public Health Agenda for Lupus.
Strategies and recommendations were organized across the Four Domains of Chronic Disease Prevention to provide a comprehensive public health approach to lupus.
Following the conference, the Agenda document was drafted with strategies and recommendations formulated by the four workgroups. Several versions of the document were reviewed by the workgroup chairs, the Steering Committee and CDC. All conference participants were invited to review a May 7 draft Agenda; over 60 comments were received from 21 people, and most were incorporated into the Agenda.
At this time, design and formatting work is underway for the Agenda, which consists of 15 strategies and 63 associated recommendations. The final document is on track for submission to CDC by June 30, 2015.
