How to Contribute
Through the generous financial support of foundations, patients and their families, and individuals, coupled with the strong support of UAB leaders, we are making excellent progress toward garnering the financial support needed to allow optimal growth of our basic, translational, and clinical research programs and our clinical endeavors. This support comes in the form of endowments, funds for development of pilot projects and exploration of novel ideas, and to support our mission of educating the next generation of clinicians and investigators in rheumatic diseases. In addition, this support will also accelerate our research efforts to better understand the pathogenesis of rheumatic diseases and develop more effective strategies to diagnose, treat, and ultimately cure or prevent these diseases.
The Goal of The Arthritis Foundation, Alabama Chapter Endowed Chair in Pediatric Rheumatology, is to provide support to the division of Pediatric Rheumatology in terms of clinical, translational, and basic science research support, support and recruitment of clinical scientist faculty members, and support of educational efforts, particularly as it relates to training the next generation of Pediatric Rheumatologists in the southeastern United States through our accredited Pediatric Rheumatology Fellowship training program.
