Message from Virginia Simson Nelson
I am active professor emerita of physical medicine and rehabilitation at a large university medical school (University of Michigan). In this role I continue to see pediatric rehab patients and mentor PMP fellows and residents as well as conducting research in the area of brachial plexus palsy. I continue to be active teaching and seeing patients in Kenya. I see the role of advisor to assist young professionals in getting to know "how to play the game"--meeting people to collaborate with both clinically and in research and learning about interdisciplinary collaboration.
