Gelman Headshot
Hi all! My name is Justin Gelman and I am so thrilled to join the John Warren Surgical Society Executive Board. I originally hail from Livingston, New Jersey and attended Duke University where I studied neuroscience. As an undergraduate, I suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm that showed me first hand the impact that surgery can have on a patient's life, as well as the challenges that patients face throughout the recovery process. My interests include cerebrovascular health, survivorship, brain aneurysm awareness, and improving the diagnosis of headaches. As a member of the JWSS, I look forward to fostering collaboration between patients and surgeons to curate events that show students interested in surgeries both the physician and patient perspective on the surgical experience.
