Meet our Team

CTD-ILD Program Team

Our team includes pulmonologists, rheumatologists, radiologists, pathologists, statisticians, nurses and staff members, who are all dedicated to improving your health care.

We also work closely with doctors specializing in pulmonary hypertension and gastroenterology. Every week, the doctors and staff members of the CTD-ILD Program meet to review patient cases in the CTD-ILD Program and develop their plan of care. This helps to ensure that your care is coordinated and that your doctors work together to create an individualized treatment plan for you.
