“I work with a fantastic group of people at the Morreene Road Clinic. Four days a week I see patients with any of the five movement disorders specialists here at Duke.

With my mentors, I do intraoperative microelectrode recording and clinical testing to ensure accurate placement of the DBS leads.” - Anna Bjornsdottir, 2016-2017 Movement Disorders fellow
