Abstract: "Working with children, whether locally or overseas is always a privilege." These are her opening comments to describe a specialization that sees her treating 300 new cases presenting neurological problems per year. "The commonest reasons for referral are seizures, movement disorders and developmental problems. Quite frankly, I have always been fascinated in knowing how the brain functions, in what makes us human and what accounts for our individuality." Student days spent working at Id-Dar Tal-Providenza on a voluntary basis, helped her make the ultimate career decision. Taking up both local and overseas training, she moved from her initial preference in behavioural and developmental sciences to take up a specific focus in pediatric neurology, with particular emphasis on epilepsy.
