Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health
The purpose of the ELHDI is to eliminate lupus related health disparities among racial and ethnic populations disproportionately affected by this disease. This overall purpose will be achieved by disseminating a national lupus education program to health professionals and student trainees in targeted schools and health care systems and practices. One grantee will be funded to conduct this national initiative. The successful grantee will be responsible for: (1) continuing the involvement of the ELHDI Consortium; (2) reviewing, and if required, revising and finalizing ELHDI curriculum, tools, resources, and materials; 3) Continuing ongoing health professions school recruitment activities; 4) Distributing lupus educational and training curricula, tools, and other resources to recruited schools, health professionals, and health care systems; and 5) conducting online and live trainings for practicing health care professionals. These activities wil l be conducted by working collaboratively with a consortium of federal and non-federal partners to promote the adoption and use of ELHDI resources (e.g., curriculum and curriculum components, related tools and resources, and materials), to reduce misdiagnosis and improve overall health and wellbeing among persons with lupus.
