Dr. Weiss is an experienced academic pediatric rheumatologist with advanced training in clinical epidemiology.

She strives to provide superior clinical care for children with rheumatic disease, use pediatric rheumatology as a platform to share her enthusiasm with students at all levels, and make meaningful contributions to advancing the care of children with JSpA through clinical research activities.
