Because of your generous donations, we were able to hire two interns for the summer of 2019 who will assist Victoria Pelak, MD in her research on Posterior Cortical Atrophy. Below you will find the biography and photograph of both our interns to begin this summer 2019. Please also see our PCA Webpages regarding our summer internship and how donations have made this possible.
Thank you again for your very generous donation and in making this possible. We hope to hire interns every summer for future PCA Research Projects.
