The Story Behind Cognitive Impairment and Lupus Brain Fog Webinar

September 21 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Dr. Zahi Touma, MD, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Medicine, Clinician-Scientist with the University of Toronto and Scientist with the Krembil Research Institute and Schroeder Arthritis Institute. He is Staff Rheumatologist with the University Health Network/Mount Sinai Hospital, and adjunct scientist with the Institute for Work and Health.

His research is focused on patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and measurement science with a particular interest in the assessment of disease activity, patient reported outcomes and cognitive function. One of his most significant contributions has been the development of the SLE disease activity indices – the SLEDAI Responder Index-50 (S2K RI-50) and SLEDAI-2K Glucocorticoids Index (SGI).

Dr. Touma is going to have his post-doctoral fellow Dr. Michelle Barraclough co-present with him.

This event is free and we ask that you register in advance.

This Lupus Ontario petition is advocating to have the Ontario government approve all biologics approved by the Federal Health Agency (CADTH) added to the Ontario Drug Formulary under the Limited Use code rather that the Exceptional Access Program. The Limited Use code eliminates the administrative burden for rheumatologists and provides faster access for lupus patients.
