Tyler Elyse Gaston, a fourth-year medical student at the University of South Alabama, recently received the Eran and N.Q. Adams Endowed Scholarship in Neurology at the department's second annual Eran and N.Q. Adams Endowed Lecture and Visiting Professorship in Neurology.
This year's lecture, titled "The Autonomic Neuropathies: Management of Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension," featured Dr. Phillip A. Low, Robert and Patricia Kern Distinguished Professor of Neurology at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine in Rochester, Minn.
Gaston received her bachelor of science degree in chemistry and psychology from Vanderbilt University in Nashville. She serves as the secretary/treasurer for the USA College of Medicine Class of 2011 and is a member of the USA College of Medicine Student Assembly.
She plans to pursue a career in neurology and will be participating in a dysautonomia research project at USA.
The Eran and N.Q. Adams Endowed Scholarship was established to support, in the early stages of their careers, young physicians engaged in neurology who wish to gain a better understanding of dysautonomia. Third and fourth year medical students at USA were invited to submit applications for the scholarship that included a unique research or learning opportunity.
