My name is John Stadler, I live with Vasculitis and therefore, I am very supportive of research that furthers the knowledge of the disease along with treatment options.  My choice to lead the Frailty study was quite easy.  I personally experience the effects of Vasculitis in my life.  I have limitations from the disease that affect my daily activities and my ability to live an active life.  I am very hopeful this study will uncover comprehensive information on frailty that leads to the minimization of frailty and treatments that reduce the impact of frailty on Vasculitis patients.
