Dr. Robert Harbaugh discusses the Penn State Institute of the Neurosciences

pennstatehershey.org Robert Harbaugh, MD talks about the advantages offered by the Penn State Neuroscience Institute. The institute is a university-wide effort combining clinical care, education and research in the neurosciences. The neurosciences are involved with disease processes like Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, stroke, brain trauma, spine trauma, brain tumors, epilepsy and a range of other problems that affect many people in central Pennsylvania. The opportunity here is that we not only do the research to develop new treatments for these problems, we train the next generation of specialists, and we give state-of-the-art care to people who have neurological problems in central Pennsylvania. We're the only university neuroscience institute in the area and we offer everything that's offered in Baltimore, Philadelphia or Pittsburgh without having to leave the central Pennsylvania area.
