The “Cure JM Physician of Excellence Award” was created to honor a physician who has demonstrated strong commitment to JM patients and families.

Dr. Colleen Correll is a Pediatric Rheumatologist at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital. Over the years, she has provided the families of Minnesota with compassionate care. Dr. Correll is constantly supporting, connecting, encouraging, and educating the families she treats, and, in 2017. Dr. Correll was an important part of establishing the new Minnesota Chapter of Cure JM.   

Dr. Correll was also instrumental in helping Cure JM understand what matters most to JM families through a series of surveys and focus groups with JM families. Her work has been presented to the global myositis research community and has guided Cure JM in defining our research priorities as an organization, so that we can fund the research that our families most want.

We are pleased to recognize Dr. Colleen Correll for her dedicated service to the families of Minnesota and all Cure JM families.
