Global advocacy – With an increased life expectancy in India but little awareness about brain disorders and an absence of lobbying by scientists, there is a need for better advocacy by scientists in India. For this, I am part of IBRO India in collaboration and the National Brain Research Center (NBRC).
With Dr. Siddharth Shah at Pediatric Neurology Clinic, Ahmedabad, I was involved in two projects.
With Dr. Sanjeev Thomas, I am working on interviewing physicians and healthcare providers to identify gaps in care for epilepsy.
With Dr. Manjari Tripathi, I am designing a study to better understand the social pressures faced by adolescents with epilepsy in India.
