PMC is saying goodbye to clinical fellow Estevana Isaac, MD, and is welcoming Catherine Norise, MD, into the clinical fellowship program.
As a clinical fellow, Dr. Isaac trained for her subspecialization in cognitive and behavioral neurology. This has included clinical work, research, and professional development.
“My favorite experience has been working with families and patients in clinic. Having one on one time, hearing their stories, and being part of their journeys was incredibly meaningful,” said Dr. Isaac.
During her time, Dr. Isaac took full advantage of interdisciplinary collaboration.
Specifically, her research focused on disparities in health outcomes for patients with diverse cultural backgrounds.
Now, at the end of her fellowship, she will continue working with patients who have Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRDs) at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, NY.
“Within dementia care, I am interested in healthcare models that will help vulnerable patient populations access healthcare,” said Dr. Isaac.
