We continue our campaign to #EndNeurophobia, with the help of Dr. Aaron Berkowitz. This time, Valeria Roldan presents a case of tremors and myoclonus to Dr. Aaron Berkowitz.
Valeria is a medical student at Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia. She was born and lives in Lima, Perú. She hopes to pursue Neurology residency. Her interests include neuro-infectious diseases, transgender health and medical education. Her work with CPSolvers involves being a part of the Virtual Morning Report team and serving on the Spanish schemas team. Outside of Medicine she loves running, hiking, cooking pasta and spending time with her dogs.
Dr. Aaron Berkowitz
Aaron recently joined the founding faculty of Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine as a professor of neurology and director of global health. He previously served as an associate professor of neurology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, where he directed the Mind-Brain-Behavior course for first-year students and was a teaching attending on the neuro-hospitalist service and in the general neurology resident clinic. As a health and policy advisor to Partners In Health and senior specialist consultant to Doctors Without Borders, he has worked tirelessly to bring neurology care and education to regions where it is limited or non-existent, including co-developing the first neurology residency in Haiti. He is the author of Clinical Pathophysiology Made Ridiculously Simple, Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy: A localization-based approach, and most recently One by One by One, which tells the complex, moving, and inspiring stories of patients he and colleagues brought from Haiti to Boston for neurosurgery for brain tumors. When he is not trying to #EndNeurophobia, Aaron loves hiking, backpacking, and obsessively researching outdoor camping gear.
