The newest Department of Medicine Chair’s Corner podcast features a conversation with Joanne Jordan, MD, and Ron Falk, MD, on osteoarthritis and the work of the Division of Rheumatology, Allergy, and Immunology at UNC. They specifically discuss osteoarthritis care and research at UNC, including the Johnston County Osteoarthritis Project and studies in allergies like Alpha-Gal. Jordan also highlights work in the community with the Osteoarthritis Action Alliance and the “Walk with a Doc” program.

"One of the holistic types of things we do in our rheumatology clinic is really think of everyone who comes to see us as someone we need to be thinking about, not just what can we do right now to help this person, but how can we preserve those joints from osteoarthritis later."
 - Dr. Joanne Jordan
