Sierra Domb, VSI: Neurovember + Schankin & Klein Video Series
New Neurovember Initiative (Nov.1st-Nov. 30th)
Throughout the month of November, Sierra Domb and the VSI team will be starting a new initiative called Neurovember (#neurovember) to boost accessibility, awareness, and education about neurology and brain health in relation to Visual Snow Syndrome.
Visual Snow Syndrome (VSS) is a multifaceted neurological disorder that can impact vision, hearing, sensory-processing, and cognition. Sierra Domb, Founder of the Visual Snow Initiative, has voiced her thoughts regarding the problematic nature of “exclusivity” in neuroscience. Sierra is passionate about making neuroscience education more accessible for people of all ages and degrees of health literacy. Through their Neurovember Initiative, Sierra Domb and the VSI team hope to empower VSS patients and encourage everyone to learn about how the human brain works, so they can better understand how it affects their health. This knowledge may also help patients communicate with their healthcare providers to make the best collective and informed decisions regarding their physical and mental health.
