Bio

Aaron Berkowitz, MD, PhD is a general inpatient and outpatient neurologist and Director of the Global Neurology Program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He works closely with NGOs Partners in Health and Physicians for Haiti on the development of education and training materials for neurologic diseases in resource-limited settings for non-neurologists. He has been actively involved in on-site and online clinical education for faculty, residents, and medical students in Haiti (St. Marc, Mirebalais, Cange, and Fond-des-Blancs) and Malawi (Neno, Lilongwe, and Blantyre). His current work includes collaborating with Partners in Health/Zanmi Lasante on a community-based epilepsy care pathway and training program for community health workers, psychologists, nurses, social workers, and physicians in Haiti's Central Plateau; creating a series of CME modules on neurologic practice in resource-constrained settings with Physicians for Haiti; and use of decision analysis modeling to develop decision aids for stroke care where CT scans are not available.
