Reach for the Cure Virginia Steen

Virginia Steen, M.D.

Reach for the Cure

“There’s never enough new researchers.  The availability of funding absolutely directs young investigators into what field they’re going to be in.  And, that’s happening.  We’re doing pretty well with some of the clinical research, but it’s not funded by the National Institutes of Health. It’s because of the Scleroderma Foundation.  It just needs to happen more,” Virginia Steen, M.D., Georgetown University Hospital.

The need is great.  The time is now.  The choice is yours.
