Like so many people with lupus, Erica Buchanan is highly motivated.  She was diagnosed with lupus while balancing a career in teaching and attending graduate school.  Erica has naturally channeled her love of education into the additional role of lupus advocate, and is a member of the ALR Multi-cultural Outreach Task Force.
