AN ACT to amend the public health law, in relation to the  lupus  educa-
  tion and outreach program

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1.  Legislative  intent.  The  legislature  hereby  finds  the
following:
  (a)  Lupus is a serious, complex, debilitating autoimmune disease that
can cause inflammation and tissue damage to virtually any  organ  system
in  the body, including the skin, joints, other connective tissue, blood
and blood vessels, heart, lungs, kidney, and brain.
  (b) Lupus research estimates that approximately one and a half to  two
million Americans live with some form of lupus; lupus affects women nine
times more often than men and eighty percent of newly diagnosed cases of
lupus develop among women of childbearing age.
  (c)  Lupus  disproportionately  affects women of color -- it is two to
three times more common among African-Americans, Hispanics,  Asians  and
Native Americans and is generally more prevalent in minority populations
-- a health disparity that remains unexplained. According to the Centers
for  Disease  Control  and  Prevention  the  rate of lupus mortality has
increased since the late 1970s and is higher among older  African-Ameri-
can women.
  (d) No new drugs have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Adminis-
tration  specifically  for lupus in nearly forty years and while current
treatments for the disease can be effective, they can lead  to  damaging
side effects.
  (e)  The  pain and fatigue associated with lupus can threaten people's
ability to live independently, make it difficult to maintain  employment
and  lead normal lives, and one in five people with lupus is disabled by
the disease, and consequently receives support from government programs,
