Baptist Medical Group Rheumatologist Eugene Jalbert Earns National Recognition from Vasculitis Foundation

Baptist Medical Group rheumatologist Eugene R. Jalbert II, D.O., MBA, FACR, has been honored with a certificate of appreciation from the Vasculitis Foundation's 2020 Recognizing Excellence in Diagnostics (RED) program.

The RED program celebrates medical professionals throughout the United States and around the world who make a quick diagnosis of vasculitis, potentially prompting a life-saving result. Dr. Jalbert's patient, Cheyanna Welch, nominated him to recognize the service she received at Baptist Medical Group – Rheumatology.

"Early detection is the key with a condition as serious as vasculitis," Dr. Jalbert said. “We are grateful that Cheyanna is doing well and appreciate her gesture of recognizing me in this way. At Baptist Medical Group – Rheumatology, we are dedicated to helping people throughout life’s journey, and the care Cheyanna received reflects that commitment.”
