MONTANA CHAPTER OF THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS AWARD

MARCH 25, 2014
The Montana Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently was selected as the winner of the AAP 2014 Outstanding Small Chapter Award at the annual meeting in Chicago.

“This is a really great accomplishment for our chapter,” said vice president of MT AAP Pepper Henyon, MD, of Bozeman Deaconess Pediatrics. “This national recognition validates the great work we are doing around the state. Over the last few years the chapter has made great strides in working with the approximately 100 pediatricians across the state to develop programs which help them deliver excellent care to their patients as well as improve the health of children in Montana.”

The MT APP’s efforts have focused on improving the numbers of children who are vaccinated, providing education to health care providers on child abuse, developing regional child abuse response teams across the state and advocating at the state legislature for laws that improve the health and safety for Montana children.

The nomination was based on the chapter’s excellence in:
• Strategic Priorities
• Activities (influencing education and participation of other health related organizations in advocacy efforts for children)
• Finances
• Membership Retention & Recruitment
• Governance & Development of chapter leadership

Neurology

TREATING DISORDERS OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM

Our neurologists diagnose and treat neurological symptoms and disorders including headaches, dementia, numbness or weakness in limbs, dizziness, epilepsy and other non-related seizures, stroke and multiple sclerosis.

NEUROLOGY

Neurologists are medical specialists that treat diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. Since the nervous system is responsible for controlling all voluntary and most automatic functions of the human body, neurological disorders can manifest in a variety of different ways.

Typical symptoms of nervous system diseases include numbness/tingling, weakness, difficulty speaking or swallowing, pain, abnormal vision, seizures, memory loss, headache, abnormal movements, problems walking and bowel or bladder dysfunction. During an office visit a neurologist listens to patients symptoms and performs a special type of physical exam to identify where the symptoms originate in the nervous system. Afterwards, they can more clearly define a diagnosis and arrive at appropriate treatment strategies.

If you experience symptoms suggestive of a neurological disorder, discuss them with your primary care doctor. He or she can determine the significance of your symptoms and advise you whether to consult a Neurologist for further diagnosis and treatment.
