Bruce Ovbiagele, MD, FRCP, professor in the department of neurology at the University of California, San Francisco, introduced four editorial apprenticeships for diverse scholars during Wednesday’s Health Equity and Actionable Disparities in Stroke: Understanding and Problem-Solving (HEADS-UP)

The editors-in-training are Danielle Cross, MD, MS, vascular neurology fellow at the University of California in San Francisco; Charles Esenwa, MD, MS, assistant professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, New York; Erica Jones, MD, MPH, assistant professor at the UT Southwestern in Dallas, Texas; and Alain Lekoubou, MD, MS, assistant professor at Pennsylvania State University in Philadelphia.


Working remotely, the editors-in-training will spend at least a year working with a mentor who is a member of the Stroke editorial team. They will participate in manuscript decisions, strategic planning for the journal, editorial team conference calls and the journal’s annual Editorial Board meeting.

Upon successful completion of the program, the editors-in-training will become members of the Stroke editorial board.
