Care, Research & Education with a People-First Approach

Our Mission

We aim to provide outstanding care for patients with diseases affecting the nervous system, advance understanding and treatment of these conditions through research and other scholarly work, and educate the next generation of physicians and scientists in the field.

Supporting, Promoting and Growing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Our department is committed to promoting inclusion, diversity, and cultural sensitivity within our program and our community. This important work happens within five sub-committees, focused on change within our department and in the many communities we serve. Together, we organize outreach in underserved communities, provide neurological care to patients with limited access to health services, perform important DEI research, host trainings and discussions, focus on diverse recruitment, and more.

Specifically, we are focused on strengthening our sense of community, fostering positivity, prioritizing self-care and providing important resources specific to the challenges of our department and field.
