About Dalila

Dalila lives in Cardiff, Wales. Since very young she had great interest in medicine. Her SLE diagnosis as a child increased her admiration for the healthcare service even more.  She holds a BA in Modern Languages with further studies in International Business and works as a legal translator. She took her first steps in research when she was living in England, where she was treated by lupus experts. Those experts helped her to understand more about lupus and how to manage it. Through this journey she also learnt about the vital role that lupus patients have in research and how today’s involvement in research could shape and improve tomorrow’s lupus treatment and care.

 

In those 20 years since initial diagnosis, Dalila has been able to experience the positive impact that a support network can have on the quality of life and mental health of those with lupus. It is of great importance for her that lupus patients receive mental health support and that it becomes part of their care and lupus journey. She runs a local support group for Lupus UK and invites those in the area to join their meetings and awareness events.

 

She is highly committed to research and volunteers as a PAN member for Lupus Europe. She is also a lay reviewer for Health and Care Research Wales, NIHR, different universities, and charities across the UK. As a new Board Member for Lupus Europe board, she is looking forward to learning and collaborating with research projects in Europe.

Patients can forget asking certain questions, especially the day they are diagnosed, due to the shock of knowing they have #lupus.

What is the question you should have asked and you didn't?

What is the question you think physicians should answer without being asked?
