Second Year Rheumatology Fellow


Dr. Allenzara chose to pursue a career in rheumatology because it afforded the opportunity to combine close, longitudinal patient care alongside the complexity of diagnosing and managing autoimmune diseases. During her training at UNC, she aspires to gain skills in epidemiology to advance understanding of disease and modifiable factors that can be targeted for improving health outcomes. Dr. Allenzara has a strong commitment to medical education and equity in medical care. In her free time, she enjoys family, reading, knitting, biking and travelling.
