We continue our campaign to #EndNeurophobia, with the help of Dr. Aaron Berkowitz. This time, Dr. Ravi Singh presents a case of right arm weakness to Yazmin and Sridhara.
Yazmin is a Mexican Graduate from the Universidad Autonoma de Yucatan. During her medical training, she developed a strong interest in Public Health, Medical Education, and Health Equity and is looking forward to pursuing a career in Internal Medicine. When she is not volunteering on a project, she likes taking care of her plants, developing her skills in the fine arts, or learning a new language.
Sridhara is a board-certified internist, neurologist, vascular neurologist, and hypertension specialist. Currently, he holds the position of Clinical Assistant Professor at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and serves as the Director of Neurology for Jefferson New Jersey.
As a medical professional, he is passionate about case-based learning, clinical reasoning, and teaching decision-making while avoiding the pitfalls of heuristics. His goal is to bridge the ever-growing gap between neurology and internal medicine, an area in which he has a keen interest.
