Dr. Sklerov will present how telemedicine in the age of COVID affects people with MSA. For patients with movement disorders, traveling to see a neurologist can be a huge hurdle to receiving care. Telemedicine in neurology has made it possible to offer convenient, routine follow-ups for many patients, especially to those diagnosed with MSA.
Please note that any medications that are referred to in this video should not be tried unless under the supervision of a licensed professional.
This webinar is moderated by Joanna Teters, Community Outreach and Resource Manager, at CurePSP. Questions can be submitted to her at firstname.lastname@example.org or through registration.
About Dr. Mirian Sklerov
Dr. Sklerov is a movement disorders specialty neurologist at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine. She completed medical school at New York Medical College and her Neurology residency training at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City. She then completed an extended 3-year fellowship training in movement disorders at Columbia University Medical Center. During her fellowship training, Dr. Sklerov obtained her MS in epidemiology from the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University through an NIH-sponsored T32 training grant. She developed a passion for caring for people with atypical parkinsonism syndromes, particularly multiple system atrophy, progressive supranuclear palsy, and corticobasal syndrome, during her training. She began to conduct research relating to these diagnoses, beginning with fluid biomarkers, genetics, and clinical trials during her time at Columbia University. Dr. Sklerov joined the UNC Neurology movement disorders team in August 2017 as an Assistant Professor. Since joining the group, she has created a clinical and research program dedicated to the care of patients with multiple system atrophy, progressive supranuclear palsy, and corticobasal syndrome. In addition to participating in research efforts, both local and international, she has started a multidisciplinary clinic for atypical parkinsonism syndromes. She also provides training for allied health professionals, neurologists, and graduate students in these conditions. She is the director of the UNC CurePSP Center of Care, and the UNC autonomic laboratory. Dr. Sklerov is dedicated to educating health care providers, patients, and the general public about multiple system atrophy, progressive supranuclear palsy, and corticobasal syndrome and promoting research for these conditions.
