Dave Clarke, MD, professor of neurology and pediatrics at Dell Medical School and chief of the Comprehensive Pediatric Epilepsy Program, has been recognized as one of the 2023 Dell Med Visionaries. These clinician-leaders are nominated and selected by their peer leaders for bringing Austin into focus as a premier destination for integrated, patient-centered health care.
Clarke’s impact extends far beyond Texas’s capital city—he is a globally recognized epileptologist who works persistently to improve access to epilepsy care around the world. “The work I do to train epileptologists and advocate for resources in Kenya and the Caribbean looks different, but is actually very similar to the work I do in Texas and with partners across the U.S.,” says Clarke. “It’s thinking outside the box about how we train people and connect them with experts in top-level centers to do consults remotely—and get families the answers they need as fast as possible.”
Congratulations, Dr. Clarke!
