BURLINGTON, MA–Dr. Nagagopal Venna, MD, Chief of the Division of Neuro-Immunology and Neuro-Infectious Diseases in the Department of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital, will discuss “Common Neurological Diseases and Their Prevention” at the annual Health, Fitness & Wellness Expo on Sunday at Burlington Marriott Hotel in Burlington, MA.
Dr. Venna will talk about various advances and discoveries in the field of wide range of brain and spinal cord and nerve diseases caused by one’s own dys-regulated immune system (Autoimmune disorders).

In an earlier interview with INDIA New England News, Dr. Venna said: “Over the past 15 years or so, a whole range of diseases of the brain, spinal cord and nerves and muscles of unknown causes and seemed untreatable are being found to be related autoimmunity directed at the nerve tissues and found to be reversible by appropriate treatments, ushering another major chapter in the Autoimmune Neurology.”
He added: “Meningitis, encephalitis and neuritis caused by infections including Lyme disease in New England, are other neurological conditions we encounter commonly in neurology practice. Vaccinations for shingles and pneumococcal vaccine have proven preventive effect as well.”
