- Speaker: Dr. Eliza Chakravarty grew up in Baltimore Maryland. Named after her grandmother who died from lupus before dialysis was available, she was drawn to rheumatology because it involved chronic care, immunology, and young women’s health. After completing medical school in Baltimore, she moved to San Jose California to complete internal medicine residency. She did her rheumatology fellowship and epidemiology training at Stanford University then was on the faculty there until being recruited to OMRF to continue her lupus research. She joined OMRF in 2011 and has continued to grow her clinical practice and her research. Her clinical and research interests focus primarily on pregnancy and other reproductive issues in women with chronic rheumatic diseases. She is passionate that people living with rheumatic diseases are able to continue to live full and complete lives, which means managing their medications to safely control underling disease during pregnancy, lactation, and raising of small children. She is a national recognized leader in reproductive rheumatology and her research has helped change clinical practice with respect to the use of medications to ensure the best outcome of pregnancy in women with lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

Funds raised through the Autoimmune Walk will be used by AARDA to support critical research aimed at solving the underlying immune issues that link ALL autoimmune disorders.
