OMAHA- To reflect the growing demand for patient services in allergy and immunology, the University of Nebraska Medical Center Department of Internal Medicine has created a Division of Allergy and Immunology, which will include four physicians/faculty members.
Jill Poole has been announced as the division’s first chief, effective January 1. Dr. Deb Romberger said she’s excited to see the allergy faculty start their journey as a division, and there is no better person in the country to lead them than Dr. Poole. Poole is a native of Grand Island.
Dr. Poole said she is excited about all the growth areas they have targeted for the division, including expansion of clinical research, community outreach, and continual commitment to patients in our region to provide cutting-edge, quality allergy and immunology care.
