    Dr. Kapil Sethi's article was featured in the June 2018 "The Lancet" titled: All about water buffaloes and refusing to be boring. Dr. Sethi is a previous AINA Lifetime Achievement Award Winner and AINA Lifetime Member.

    View the first paragraph of his article and click here to read more!

    You may know him as Professor Emeritus of Neurology at the Medical College of Georgia, Augusta University (Augusta, GA, USA), as director of the College’s Movement Disorders Program (1985–2016), or perhaps as director of its National Parkinson’s Foundation Center of Excellence (2000–2009). You may know him from the many (many) clinical trials on Parkinson’s disease, restless legs syndrome, and other movement disorders with which he has been involved. Many of you will know him best as your teacher— the expert in movement disorders who tried to make your medical training more meaningful, more relevant, and whenever possible, more fun. His own primary school teachers back in the Punjabi town of Sultanpur, however, knew him as the little rascal who used to run away from school and who had to be dragged back to class (yes, truly held on jute mats under a shade tree). While he tells me his story, I wonder if what I write should be a tribute to him or to those teachers, whose brilliant educational diagnosis and application of the right treatment planted the seed that grew into those different Kapils we know today.
