I am an adult and pediatric rheumatologist with clinical and research interests in the areas of lupus and transition to adult care.  My time is split between the departments of Medicine and Pediatrics.  In addition to seeing patients in both environments, I am starting a dedicated Young Adult Rheumatology Clinic, which will serve clinical, educational, and research missions.
