“I kind of fell into this,” Dr. Fischer told me.
You wouldn’t know it by looking at the Doctor of the Year award sitting on his desk. He received it in 2014 from the Scleroderma Foundation at the National Patient Education Conference.
Despite the unexpected journey, Dr. Fischer is now a Rheumatologist, researcher, and associate professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine here in Colorado working every day to help his scleroderma patients live better and longer. He’s also a member of the Scleroderma Foundation’s medical advisory board and a faculty member for the Foundation’s Continuing Medical Education/Continuing Nursing Education program.
