Penn Neurology

Global Health and Health Equities



We develop iterative, need-driven lectures on the implications of racial and socioeconomic disparities within neurology, and medicine more broadly.


We provide opportunities for residents to practice neurology in traditionally underserved populations, both locally and globally.


We empower residents to be leaders in physician advocacy, both home and abroad.

“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”
