As Director of the Global Neurology Program, Aaron Berkowitz, MD, PhD has provided neurology education and clinical consultation in Haiti (where there is one neurologist for a population of approximately 10 million) and Malawi (where there is one pediatric neurologist but no adult neurologist for a population of approximately 16 million).
