Our GSK "Living with Lupus" series continues! This month, Paula White will join us to share a presentation on the importance of taking an active role in your lupus journey, along with some resources - including the Us In Lupus website - to help us in that effort. We'll see you there!


Paula White is a Registered Nurse and Patient Engagement Liaison with GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals. She grew up in the Midwest where she attended college and earned her Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Nursing from the University of Saint Francis in Illinois. She has 25 years of experience within acute care and community health settings. Early in her career, she quickly discovered her passion to ensure patients are knowledgeable about their diagnosis and develop self-confidence in managing their disease. She has spent 20 years educating patients and raising awareness regarding Respiratory and Immunology diseases. She has a strong regard for patients suffering with chronic illness and strives to ensure each patient she touches walks away feeling empowered to continue learning how to live their best life. With a family lineage of educators, she plans to continue learning and sharing throughout her career.
