We are, Lupus And Community Empowering Support, known as “LACES”,
a patient resource and advocacy organization that collaborates with other health organizations to promote lupus
research, awareness, and education, and serves the needs of people with lupus and their families.
LACES was founded in 2003 by Kim Schofield, a lupus patient desiring to empower
other people living with lupus to live in, through and beyond this disease. Diagnosed for over ten years, she
formed a support group in DeKalb County, GA and partnered with the Georgia Chapter of the Lupus
American to increase awareness and become a patient advocate for others living with lupus. LACES is comprised
of many active lupus patients committed to raising awareness through health fairs, support group meetings,
mentoring and community outreach initiatives. LACES meets every second Tuesday of each month at the William
C. Brown, Wesley Chapel Library, 2861 Wesley Chapel Rd, Decatur, GA 30034 from 7:00pm – 8:00pm.
