Alba Parra Checa

Sant Joan de Déu Hospital,
Barcelona, Spain

As a Neuropsychologist I have experience in diagnosing and treating learning disorders as well as in other disorders associated with pediatric medical / neurological conditions. I also have experience in cognitive stimulation and rehabilitation of adults with neurological disorders and / or brain damage.

I am currently developing my research activity in the Neurocutaneous Diseases Unit of the Oncology Department of the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital.

I am linked to family associations of type 1 Neurofibromatosis sufferers participating not only in the research and understanding of this minority disease but also in providing support to patients and family members and through outreach through talks.
