Dr Nwaonu holds an academic appointment as an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine (VTCSOM). She considers the education of both students, physicians and patients as one of the primary goals in Rheumatology. She enjoys working with patients in managing their conditions and guiding them on their journey to better health.
Many rheumatological conditions are chronic and the diagnosis may be the start of a long, complicated journey. A close, trusting relationship with the patient is most important to me as we work together on a management plan and treatment.
