Visiting Professor: Niall Quinn, MD
Host: Madhuri Bahari, MD, DM
The All India Institute of Medical Societies (AIIMS) in Delhi, led by Prof. Madhuri Behari, was pleased to welcome Prof. Niall Quinn as a Visiting Professor. While in India, Prof. Quinn visited Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences in Hyderabad. During his stay, Prof. Quinn provided the audience of over 100 participants with lectures and video presentations of typical and atypical cases, including MSA, PSP and other tauopathies, the medical and surgical management of Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease and other choreas, dystonia tics and myoclonus. Dr. Behari was very appreciative of Prof. Quinn's participation, noting that "His years of vast experience, in-depth study of different types of Movement Disorders, very well taken video clips of common as well as uncommon Movement Disorders, and clear, concise and unambiguous delivery of lectures went a long way in helping the participants understand the basic characteristics of several Movement Disorders and differentiate different types of parkinsonisms from one another, especially the subtle clinical features and management of these disorders."
