On Tuesday, December 15, 2020, Miriam Sklerov, M.D., M.S., movement disorders specialty neurologist at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, will discuss how telemedicine in the age of COVID affects people with multiple system atrophy (MSA). This CurePSP Ask the Doctor webinar begins at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (10:00 a.m. Pacific).

Traveling to see a neurologist can be a huge hurdle for patients with movement disorders. Telemedicine in neurology has made it possible to offer convenient, routine follow-ups for many patients, especially to those diagnosed with MSA.

This webinar will be moderated by Joanna Teters, CurePSP’s community outreach and resource manager. Questions can be submitted in advance at info@curepsp.org or through the registration link. 

Dr. Sklerov will answer questions that were submitted during registration by patients and families. Know that she cannot give case-specific medical advice. Any medications that are referred to during the webinar should not be tried unless under the supervision of a licensed professional.

The webinar will be set up on the Zoom platform. Registration is required. A link to the webinar will be emailed to registrants twice from Eventbrite before the event: the first will be two hours before the event, and the second ten minutes before.

This webinar will be recorded and emailed to all registrants. Previous Ask to Doctor webinars can be viewed on the CurePSP YouTube channel.

Dr. Sklerov

Dr. Sklerov is dedicated to educating health care providers, patients, and the general public about MSA, progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), and corticobasal syndrome (CBS) and promoting research for these conditions. She is the director of the UNC CurePSP Center of Care and the UNC autonomic laboratory.

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 did an extended three-year fellowship training in movement disorders at Columbia University Medical Center. During her fellowship training, Dr. Sklerov obtained her M.S. in epidemiology from the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University through an NIH-sponsored T32 training grant. 

Dr. Sklerov developed a passion for caring for people with atypical parkinsonism syndromes, particularly MSA, PSP, and CBS 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. 

She joined the UNC Neurology movement disorders team in August 2017 as an assistant professor. Since joining the group, she has created a multidisciplinary clinic for atypical parkinsonism syndromes and a research program that trains allied health professionals, neurologists, and graduate students in these conditions.
