Pronouns: she/her/hers

Dr. Jean Liew graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with degrees in Biology and English and went on to earn her MD at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, TX. She then relocated to the Pacific Northwest to complete an Internal Medicine residency at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, OR followed by rheumatology fellowship at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. She concurrently earned an M.S. in Epidemiology through the University of Washington School of Public Health. During her fellowship, the primary focus of her research was in axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA), specifically AS, and cardiovascular comorbidity.

As a member of the COVID-19 Global Rheumatology Alliance (GRA) and a member of its Steering Committee, she is involved in multiple projects relating to data collection, analysis, and dissemination of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on individuals with rheumatic disease. In addition to co-authorship on publications from the GRA provider-entered registry, she has co-led a literature review on acute viral respiratory adverse effects of commonly used anti-rheumatic medications, and several peer-reviewed or invited commentaries on data for the use of hydroxychloroquine in COVID-19.
