SLE and COVID-19: What is the Evidence? Webinar

April 20 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Dr. Konstantinos Tselios started working in the field of systemic autoimmune diseases during his specialty training. He found his calling in Medicine when he engaged in clinical research in systemic lupus erythematosus for his PhD thesis. After completing that, he was awarded the Geoff Carr Research Fellowship from Lupus Ontario in 2014 and the opportunity to come to Canada. He was further trained in the Toronto Lupus Clinic under the supervision of Dr. Urowitz and Dr. Gladman for several years. In January 2021, he started a new chapter in his life by becoming an Assistant Professor with the Division of Rheumatology, McMaster University. In the near future, Kostas hopes to establish a Lupus Clinic and Biobank for research purposes in Hamilton with the generous support of Lupus Ontario.       

Dr. Konstantinos Tselios, MD, PhD, will be discussing COVID-19 (what it is, how is it transmitted, impact on the general population, etc.) and then he will focus on the impact on the lupus community. He will give a brief description of the vaccines and what a lupus patient should know before the vaccination.

This webinar is free and we ask that you please 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.
