Dr. Nancy Beckerman and Dr. Charles Auerbach, senior Wurzweiler faculty, have partnered with the SLE Lupus Foundation of New York and have developed the largest research study on psychological impact of living with Lupus in the United States. Dr. Beckerman and Dr. Auerbach have completed the first stage of this study and have presented their findings at several hospitals throughout the New York city area. They have expanded the study, working with Rheumatologist Dr. Irene Blanco at Einstein College of Medicine, to study Lupus patients at Einstein, Montefiore and Jacobi hospitals. This study provides essential feedback from patients so that health care providers can respond to their unique needs.
