"From the Desk Of" Staff Highlight - December 2020

From the Desk Of...

Each month, one staff member from the Department of Internal Medicine will be highlighted in a new staff recognition program called "From the Desk Of..." We are fortunate to have such talented staff members, and we want the rest of the department to get to know "the face behind the email."

December's featured staff member is Rosario "Adriana" Molano-Romero, a PA-C in the Division of Rheumatology.
