We’d like to extend a warm congratulations to Alumna Jillian Rose, LCSW ’05, MPH, on receiving the Distinguished Educator Award from the Association of Rheumatology Health Professionals (ARHP) for her “sustained excellence in the teaching of patients and students/trainees, including health professional students, medical students, residents, graduate students, and/or fellows, with their primary focus being rheumatology-related content.”
Jillian currently serves as Director of Community Engagement, Diversity and Research at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in New York City. She started her career at HSS in 2005 and has dedicated much of her work to understanding inequalities in rheumatology care and empowering both patients and health care providers to ensure the highest quality of care for all.
Most recently, she served as a guest speaker at our recent Communities of Color Roundtable Networking Event, where she provided mentorship and advice to current students about leading successful careers as professionals of color.
