Message From the Chief – May 2022

University of Virginia Dr Mitchell RosnerSpring is here, and thus it is quite appropriate that we highlight the Division of Asthma, Allergy, and Immunology this month. While April showers bring May flowers, they also bring a host of seasonal allergies! The Division is led by Dr. Michael Nelson, who has made a tremendous impact as a stellar teacher, clinician, researcher, and mentor in his short time as Chief. As you will read, the Division has a storied and rich history. It is also rewriting the science behind our understanding of allergic and immunologic diseases with ground-breaking research and cutting-edge clinical care. The Division has garnered much recognition with multiple high-profile publications, awards, and other accolades over the past few years. I would highly encourage everyone to read this edition of Medicine Matters and learn more.

A few other items to make you aware of as well. We will be continuing our monthly Department Town Halls, with the next session being at the end of May and focusing on research issues. We are also ready to move medicine grand rounds back to the in-person format, which will include lunch. We will continue to offer a virtual option for those who have difficulty attending in person. Lastly, a reminder that the Department of Medicine award nominations are due on May 15th.

Enjoy reading this edition of Medicine Matters.

With best wishes,

Mitchell H. Rosner, MD, MACP
Henry B. Mulholland Professor of Medicine
Chair, Department of Medicine
