Diagnosis of auto-immune conditions (AI) such as Lupus, Crohn's, Multiple Sclerosis, Hashimoto's, and Rheumatoid Arthritis are on the rise.

For reasons not yet clear, 80% of individuals with autoimmune diseases are women. In fact, autoimmune diseases are among the leading causes of death and disability in girls and women 65 years of age and younger.

The daily impact of AI conditions on women's work lives, personal lives, and even pregnancy during our 20's and 30's can be life-altering and stressful. For many, the mental stress of finding a diagnoses leads to further symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Odds are, a woman you know will be affected by autoimmune diseases.

How do you know if your symptoms are caused by AI? What can you do to manage these conditions and your quality of care?

Join us on 9th October at Accenture for an open discussion with an expert panel and women who are living with AI conditions.

This is an opportunity to ask frank questions and gain insight from women like you.
