Thank you for helping to make our 2021 Lupus Ontario Geoff Carr Fellowship fundraiser a success. 76 family, friends, neighbours, and colleagues donated $8,533 – more than $251,000 in 16 years!
Dr. Ambika Gupta, Internist and Rheumatologist, is the 2020/2021 Geoff Carr Fellow. The following are her words regarding the value and impact of the Fellowship:
I am very fortunate to have been part of the Toronto Lupus Clinic at Toronto Western Hospital over this last year. I have had the opportunity to work with and learn from world-renowned leaders in the care of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus: Dr. Zahi Touma, Dr. Murray Urowitz and Dr. Dafna Gladman. With their guidance, I have improved my clinical skills and am becoming proficient at diagnosing, treating, and addressing complications of Lupus. I have also had the opportunity to be involved with clinical research, in the area of neuropsychiatric manifestations of Lupus. The ability to make a difference in the lives of patients with Lupus has been a very personally rewarding experience for me. I am extremely thankful for the Geoff Carr Lupus Fellowship and Lupus Ontario, because without their support, it would not have been possible to obtain this education and experience.
