The Kirk Kekorian School of Medicine at UNLV will create a Division of Rheumatology thanks to a generous donation from the Engelstad Foundation. The donation will be used to hire and train rheumatologists, helping combat a severe shortage of specialists in Southern Nevada. Rheumatologists typically treat arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions and systemic diseases that can cause pain, swelling, and stiffness in joints, muscles, and bones.
