Nick Cannon Teams With The NMA For Lupus Awareness

National Medical Association and Nick Cannon promote lupus education.

Published December 13, 2013

The National Medical Association (NMA) is excited to highlight our collaboration with Bristol-Myers Squibb and Nick Cannon, a multi-talented entertainer and television personality, in an effort to raise awareness of lupus nephritis.

Nick Cannon was diagnosed in 2012 lupus nephritis and he is featured in a new video to increase awareness about clinical trials and options for lupus nephritis studies. Bristol-Myers Squibb created the video with guidance from the NMA.

The effort is part of NMA’s commitment to provide education and resources for people with lupus nephritis who want to learn about clinical trials and opportunities to help advance lupus research.
