Carol A. Blair Endowment Fund

Carol Blair, RN, worked for nearly 30 years in our Scleroderma Clinic as a nurse clinician and research study coordinator. She had a comprehensive knowledge of scleroderma and a remarkable ability to “connect” with patients and their family members, answering their questions in a down-to-earth way and providing needed emotional support and reassurance.

Carol’s husband, Dr. Andrew R. Blair, has generously created this endowment in her honor. The earnings of this endowment will be available to the Scleroderma Center directors to support activities which Carol was particularly passionate about – patient education and Rheumatology fellow scleroderma-related research projects.
