Dr. Marianela Castillo de Ariza


The Dominican Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Foundation “DOCAR” is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1985 by Dr. Marianela Castillo de Ariza. Dr. Ariza received the honor of Professor in Pediatrics. She was also a pioneer in the area of Pediatric Rheumatology. As the head of the Department of Pediatric Rheumatology at the Children’s Hospital in Santo Domingo, she saw firsthand the limitations in getting proper medical care for poor children afflicted with rheumatological disorders. Since its inception, the “Fundación Dominicana de Reumatologia Infantil”, has helped thousands of children obtain medications, diagnostic testing and variousforms of Physical Therapies.

Dr. Ariza passed away in the summer of 2009. Since then we have pledged to continue her work, so that the children can receive the care they deserve.
