Dr. Harvey: Every year we have a RISE strategic summit where we invite registered stakeholders to come and help us think about what the registry and the committee should focus on for the next year. We were unable to hold that meeting in 2020 because of the pandemic, but we will be planning a virtual summit in late spring or early summer 2021.
TR: What do you do for fun outside of ACR and rheumatology?
Dr. Harvey: I love cooking, so that’s probably the thing I do most. I also have two young kids and taking care of them takes a lot of time and is very fun. The other thing I really like doing is home projects. I’m definitely a DIYer and renovated the basement and rebuilt our deck.
TR: How did you get into medicine?
Dr. Harvey: My father is an oncologist and certainly encouraged me to get into medicine. I actually took a detour for a while in college and became very interested in politics and health policy. Eventually I decided that I could have the best of both worlds. I’m one of those lucky people who’ve been able to combine my personal hobbies and interests into a whole career that has kept me very busy, but very happy.
