Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. The “frequent flyer” clinic’s comprehensive and coordinated care is supported by a multidisciplinary team of nurses, physical therapists, social workers and pediatric rheumatologists. Dr. Pachman’s team is developing and standardizing new ways to monitor symptoms and signs of disease activity while they are engaged in NIH-sponsored advanced molecular studies of the myositis process.
