SUNY Downstate Medical Center
My name is Nima Yazdanpanah, DO and I’m a PGY2 at SUNY Downstate Medical Center. My background is in biomedical-engineering, biology, and bioinformatics through Georgia Institute of Technology. I completed a fellowship training in emergency-medicine at the NYU Langone Health prior to my PGY2 training. I’m interested in interrogative technologies in rehabilitation-medicine and was awarded the winner of MIT-Grand-Hack-2019 for “Best Assistive Tech & Rehab Hack to Improve Lives of Patients with Chronic Pain”. I mentor for MIT Hacking Medicine since. I have over 20-years of experience in performing arts and operatic singing with latest involvement at the Atlanta-Opera-Company. My hobbies and passions are meditation and yoga, as I currently teach different styles of hatha-yoga, vinyasa-yoga, and traditional-hot-yoga. I currently serve as the executive board secretary at the New York Society of PM&R, website/IT/social-medical/forum committee at the Easter Pain Association, and trainee committee at the American Academy of Pain Medicine.
