The Lupus Foundation of America, North Carolina Chapter (LFANC) will be hosting its “2015 Lupus Empowerment Workshops” in Greensboro on Saturday, Aug. 8. The two-part workshop in Greensboro will take place from 10:00AM-1:00PM at Guildford Technical Community College – Greensboro Campus located at 3505 E. Wendover Ave. in Greensboro (27405). Dr. Angie Hawkes with Greensboro Medical Associates will present Part 1: “Lupus and the Skin.” Part 2 will be a panel discussion about “Managing Your Life with Lupus.” “These educational seminars are a wonderful way for us to give the 45,000 individuals in North Carolina who are living with lupus the opportunity to feel empowered to take charge of their health,” said Christine John-Fuller, President & CEO of LFANC. “We couldn’t do this without the amazing support of our presenters and volunteers who play a vital role in supporting our mission and in helping make life better for those affected by lupus.” There is no charge to attend, but registration is required for the workshop in Greensboro by Aug. 5. For questions, call 877-849-8271 or email email@example.com. For more information about the “2015 Lupus Empowerment Series” and to sign up, visit www.lupusnc.org.

North Carolina law requires that all domestic pets (cats, dogs and ferrets), whether living inside or outside, age four months or older be vaccinated. Even animals that are confined in outdoor fenced areas should have current rabies vaccinations, because wild animals can get into these areas and attack your pets.
Rabies continues to circulate within our wildlife population. The best way to protect your family and your pet’s safety is to vaccinate your pets against rabies. Guilford County Animal Control is offering low-cost rabies vaccination clinics at the following locations and times:
