Description: : Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease that disproportionately affects racial and ethnic minority, including American Indian/Alaska Native, and disadvantaged populations. The purpose of the Health Education Lupus Program (HELP) is to eliminate lupus related health disparities among racial and ethnic minority populations and disadvantaged population disproportionately affected by this disease. Many, if not most, of the affected population a) live in communities without experienced providers; 2) can have other simultaneous comorbidities; 3) receive services covered by available public insurance, i.e., Medicaid or Medicare, if eligible; and 4) have not been exposed to a culturally and linguistically appropriate public awareness messages regarding lupus. Six to nine eligible applicants will be funded to a) increase and improve culturally and linguistically appropriate awareness to the general public; improve training and curriculum development for required certified education units (CEU) focused on lupus for health care providers , including certified and licensed community health workers or other certified and licensed health-care paraprofessionals; improve lupus diagnosis and treatment and address comorbidities co-occurring with lupus; and develop lupus self-management curriculum for minority and disadvantaged populations living in urban and rural territories and training; or b) expand the implementation of a culturally and linguistically appropriate education program on clinical trials focused on lupus that educates and recruits racial and ethnic minority, including American Indian/Alaska Native, and/or disadvantaged populations to participate in clinical trials focused on lupus.
