Dr. Namrata Singh has been the PI of the Iowa City Veterans Affairs Rheumatoid Arthritis (VARA) registry since May 2015. She took over this role from Dr. Elizabeth Field, who is still actively involved in the registry. Under Dr. Singh’s leadership and with the instrumental support of research coordinator Munazza Fatima, Iowa City’s contribution to the registry has been phenomenal, making Iowa City the top contributor of new patients to the registry.
At the most recent meeting held Sept 26-27, 2016, the Iowa City VARA team were recognized as the top VARA site for the 2015-2016 enrollment year. Congratulations to Dr. Singh and the entire team!
