Kathy Molnar-Kimber loves to teach and ignite enthusiasm for a subject, including rheumatoid arthritis.
As a teacher or professor (Dr. Kathy Molnar-Kimber), I encouraged my students to ask questions and search for possible solutions. Then check each solution.
More recently I'm blessed with being a parent and Girl Scout leader. I continually like to expand the vision and insights of everyone--young, mature, all-- for health, nature, nutrition and sports.

In summary, my broad research experience includes over 20 years in the pharmaceutical industry and biotechnology industry and at a University. Dr. Kathy Molnar-Kimber has published over 50 scientific manuscripts.
Everyday, I focus my scientific background and training (what questions to ask, view each aspect of disease from many perspectives, view theories with an open mind) to provide you a review of rheumatoid arthritis and new insights.
As a RA patient also, I continually search for new insights that helps you and me further improve our health.
Fortunately, I've learned enough to improve my health so that I dance a small part in a local production of the Nutcracker Ballet (adults in the party scene) for the last 4 years.
If you have questions about rheumatoid arthritis, please send them to me because others just like you may also have those questions. Your question may also spur further research that leads to new ideas and ultimately a cure.
Please note that the information on this website is a sharing of information and knowledge from the research and experience of Dr. Molnar-Kimber and her community. It is not intended to replace your one on one relationship with a qualified health care professional. It also is not intended to be medical advice. However, it is often observed that patients who take a major interest in their disease and learn as much as they can about their disease and potential treatments often improve faster than those who don’t. Dr. Molnar-Kimber encourages you to make your own health care decisions based upon your own research and discussions with your qualified health care professional.
