Supporting Children & Youth
Since 2016 COIN has concentrated on ensuring public schools have access to information on lupus. COIN, in collaboration with the Georgia Council on Lupus Education and Awareness (GCLEA), Big Bend Rural Health Network (BBHRN) in Florida and the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD), has worked to conduct live and online education sessions on lupus for school nurses. To date, the education sessions have been attended by more than 300 school professionals.
Additionally, through these efforts, lupus has been included on the Fulton County, Ga., School District’s data tracking survey. In Florida, information on lupus has been added to the toolkits tab on the state’s school health webpage, and lupus has been added as a reported condition on the school health report that is completed by all 67 county school health programs annually.| ← Previous | | | Next → | Single Page
