The non-profit Local Lupus Alliance is bringing Dr. Al Kim to La Crosse to present on challenges to patients and caregivers of patients with chronic and sometimes invisible illnesses. Dr. Kim is a highly respected clinician and researcher from Washington University in St. Louis and is known as an entertaining speaker. The title of the talk is “You Don’t Look Sick: Barriers Affecting Patients and their Community of Caregivers/Providers” and it is on Wednesday, July 10 at 5:30 p.m. at Celebrations on the River (the reception hall next to Shenanigans). Note that this is purely an educational talk targeted toward patients, caregivers, and healthcare providers and is not a fundraiser. A free, chef prepared meal will be served.
