The OHSU Department of Neurology is one of the nation’s leading neurologic research and training programs and provides the most comprehensive care of neurologic illnesses in the Pacific Northwest. We have subspecialty centers that offer specialized care for patients with a range of neurologic diseases including Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders, multiple sclerosis, stroke, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, neuromuscular diseases, epilepsy and brain tumors.

A message about diversity, equity and inclusion

My goal for our department is to foster a community that seeks diversity and is accepting and inclusive of all. I personally will try to meet all URiM faculty, staff, and trainees and make sure they feel welcome and supported. It is important to me that each of us in the department commits to learning how to recognize and condemn all behaviors consistent with racism in any form. We have a vigorous Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, and I will continue to make it a priority to help move the goals of our committee forward, including the recruitment of diverse faculty and trainees and becoming anti-racist in our work.
