Chairman’s Message

On behalf of the Arizona United Rheumatology Alliance, thank you for visiting and welcome to our website.

AURA represents the interests of rheumatologists, researchers, and allied health professionals who are dedicated to caring for patients with rheumatic diseases. I am honored to serve as the Chairman of the Board for the 2017 – 2020 years. It is my goal to continue the tradition of excellence that AURA has developed surrounding our annual scientific meeting, as well as advocacy on the state and federal levels for patients suffering from rheumatic diseases. I hope to continue to involve members of the Arizona rheumatology community on all levels and from every area of the state. Thanks again for visiting our site, and please feel free to contact me with any questions, suggestions, or interests.
