Lindenauer Lecture

Speaker Series

The Marilyn R. Lindenauer Distinguished Speaker Series at Columbia University Irving Medical Center was established by Dr. S. Martin and Ms. Marilyn R. Lindenauer in 2013. The Speaker Series provides an opportunity for the Weinberg Family Cerebral Palsy Center to host lectures by medical professionals from around the world to discuss groundbreaking new ideas and emerging technologies related to the care of cerebral palsy patients. The lectureship is also an important component in helping to educate the broader medical community and foster greater awareness of the needs of cerebral palsy patients. We are grateful to the Lindenauer family and their friends for supporting our education mission.

On October 30th, 2023 we hosted Bhooma Aravamuthan, MD, DPhil, Assistant Professor of Neurology at Washington University School of Medicine who spoke on "Dystonia in Cerebral Palsy: A Story of Variability". Dr. Aravamuthan is a pediatric movement disorders specialist, and widely regarded as a national expert in dystonia in cerebral palsy. You can find the lecture recording here.
