    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Hi and welcome to the community!

    I encourage you to visit our Lupus Health Center where you can find information on symptoms, treatment options and living with lupus. It is a great place to stay up-to-date on new lupus findings and search through slideshows and videos for more lupus support.

    I would also like to make you aware of our Day2Night tool which will give you great tips to at-home management of your lupus.

    I hope these help, and I'm sure that you will get some more feedback from the community members!
