About Us

The California Rheumatology Alliance (CRA) is a specialty physician association comprised of rheumatologists from community practices and medical centers throughout the state. The majority of our members come from the Northern California Rheumatology Society (NCRS) and, the Southern California Rheumatology Society (SCRS). Our membership has since expanded to include all those health professionals regularly engaged in the care of patients with rheumatic diseases. Please contact Executive Director, Shanna Castro for more information about our organization.
