A Message From the Chief
In the Division of Rheumatology, Allergy & Immunology we are working to gain new insights and knowledge about the causes – as well as ways to prevent and treat – a broad spectrum of rheumatologic, allergic and immunologic diseases.
We are passionate about ongoing research that continually yields important new scientific data. We are committed to finding ways to provide the best possible care through the use of therapeutic options that are currently available as well as the new ones we help to develop. Just as importantly, we learn each day from our most important teachers of all; our patients.
Our goals are to access today’s most advanced medical approaches and provide the best physician training, with a focus on providing individualized and compassionate patient care.
This comprehensive, yet focused approach, partnered with our belief in the importance of patient-centered care is at the core of our mission.
At the end of the day, this approach creates a very positive impact – both in the way that our physicians practice medicine, as well as in the lives of our patients and their families.
Dr. Beth Jonas
Chief, UNC Division of Rheumatology, Allergy and Immunology
