Philanthropy plays a vital role in the Division of Rheumatology. It allows us to invest in the people and infrastructure that enable research into the causes and means of prevention for rheumatic diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, SLE, Scleroderma, Vasculitis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Osteoarthritis, and other chronic immunologic and inflammatory diseases. The research informs the care we provide in our many specialty clinics.

We are fortunate to be the home of the Rosalind Russell Medical Research Center for Arthritis. Established in 1978 by an act of Congress to posthumously honor the stage and screen actress Rosalind Russell whose advocacy focused national attention on the need for research into these diseases, the organization now raises funds to support research and training in the Division of Rheumatology.

How You Can Help

There are many ways to support the Division of Rheumatology at UCSF in its mission to provide outstanding cutting edge clinical care, to advance the discipline through clinical and basic research, and to train the next generation of rheumatologists. Donations from patients, family, and friends are key to furthering this mission. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Jessica Philbrook at (704) 287-2613 or at [email protected].
