10 Year Center of Excellence Award

GWU Team with AwardGeorge Washington University Center of Excellence

In 2008, the GW Myositis Center was established at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. to provide free consultations for JM children who could benefit from a second opinion by juvenile myositis experts.

This award recognizes Dr. Rodolfo Curiel, Dr. Jim Katz, Dr. Gulnara Mamyrova, Dr. Olcay Jones, Dr. Alison Ehrlich, and Dr. Lisa Rider for providing exceptional care to JM families from all over the world as well as providing expert advice to those patients' local doctors.

We also honor this team's dedication in training a new generation of rheumatology fellows, medical students, and other health professionals in the treatment and recognition of JM, so future JM patients can receive an early diagnosis and quality care.

This award also acknowledges Cure JM Parents Annie Mitchell, Michelle Best, and Simonetta D’Onofrio for their dedication in supporting and encouraging families who attend the GW Clinic.
