People & Care

Thanks to philanthropic support of Brain Breakthroughs, teams were able to jumpstart or expand various neurology fellowship programs, from stroke and epilepsy to neurocritical care. Your generosity helped provide fellows with the training and experience to become future leads in their field. They will take this knowledge with them wherever they may practice to help more patients.

Meet the next generation of Neurology superstars.
