Andrew Manley, a fourth-year medical student at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine, was recently awarded the Eran and N.Q. Adams Endowed Scholarship in Neurology at the department’s third annual Eran and N.Q. Adams Endowed Lecture and Visiting Professorship in Neurology.
This year’s lecture, titled “Disorders of Orthostatic Intolerance-Syncope, Orthostatic Hypotension and Postural Tachycardia Syndrome,” featured Dr. Roy L. Freeman of Harvard University, professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School and director of the Center for Autonomic and Peripheral Nerve Disorders in the department of neurology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Mass.
Manley, who plans to pursue a career in neurology, received his bachelor of arts degree in psychology from USA. As a medical student, he has served as the vice president of the Student Interest Group in Neurology and secretary/treasurer of the Family Medicine Interest Group.
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.
