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.
