Centers of Excellence

Our Centers of Excellence serve as the backbone of Cure JM’s Clinical Care Network which spans from coast to coast and beyond. 

All members of Cure JM’s Clinical Care Network are recognized for the extraordinary care they provide to juvenile myositis patients and families.

In addition to providing the best care, Centers of Excellence are world-class leaders in JM research.  Each center employs strong organizational support from their respective institutions, assuring that Cure JM’s investment in clinical care and research is matched by an institutional commitment to building a robust JM program.
