Dr. Cannella’s main interests are in clinical rheumatology, education and musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSUS). She sees patients in clinic at UNMC and the VA, including the utilization of MSUS to diagnose and treat rheumatic disease.

She is also involved in resident and medical school education, directing both the resident rheumatology curriculum and the second-year medical student core in rheumatology. She has developed several novel educational tools for rheumatology, including a video game on gout and an inter-professional pharmacology e-learning module. She is a member of the UNMC College of Medicine admissions committee and curriculum innovations workgroup.
