This week, Dr. Daniel Correa speaks with disability activist Paula Carozzo who shares her story of experiencing a hypoxic brain injury at 5-years-old that led to her being diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Paula discusses how she learned to embrace her diagnosis and advocate for others with disabilities, aiming to enhance accessibility and combat stigma. Next, Dr. Correa sits down with Dr. Andres Jimenez Gomez, a pediatric neurologist neurodevelopmental pediatrician at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. Dr. Jimenez Gomez explains what hypoxic brain injuries are and how they are related to neurologic conditions like cerebral palsy and discusses ways that parents can learn about and understand their child’s condition.
