Many congratulations to super UCSF med students Abraham Dada and Danielle Hart, who presented their posters at the American Academy of Neurology annual meeting in Boston.

Abe’s poster, “Factors mediating public perceptions of therapeutic closed-loop brain implants for epilepsy and mood disorders,” included data from a national survey characterizing mediators of demographic differences in the prospecive acceptability of closed loop implanted devices. Danielle’s poster, “Financial toxicity in dementia caregiving,” included data from a national survey of dementia caregivers indicating that Black, non-Hispanic caregivers were more likely to experience financial toxicity than white, non-Hispanic caregivers; with age as a somewhat surprising protective factor.
