MOHAMED.jpgMohamed Kazamel, MD, has been selected to join the Muscle & Nerve Editorial Board. Dr. Kazamel will be responsible for managing Muscle & Nerve’s social media accounts, gaining followers, and growing the journal’s presence across all platforms.

“To me and many other neuromuscular neurologists and physiatrists, Muscle & Nerve has been the most important journal in the field of neuromuscular medicine,” said Dr. Kazamel. “This will be a great opportunity to take on a position where I can use a different and more contemporary channel to widen the audience base of the journal and help its readers see the journal material in a more efficient way.”

Social media continues to change the way people communicate, including the medical community. Dr. Kazamel believes platforms like Twitter are an invaluable resource right now, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Social media has been useful in spreading general medical information and awareness to a large audience faster than any other channel, especially when it comes to the younger generation,” Dr. Kazamel said.

Dr. Kazamel also says social media is a great way for those in the medical community to connect with one another.

“It offers an opportunity for journal readers to comment and exchange thoughts on published articles in a more convenient and informal way from their computers or smartphones,” he said.

As he takes on this new role, Dr. Kazamel is focused on improving the visibility of the important research published in Muscle & Nerve.

“I hope to help bring the Muscle & Nerve material to its audience in a faster and more convenient way,” Dr. Kazamel said. “I am excited for the opportunity to serve on the Muscle & Nerve Editorial Board through this new channel.”

Dr. Kazamel is an associate professor of neurology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), where he directs the UAB Autonomic Testing Laboratory. He is also assistant director of the Shin J. Oh Muscle and Nerve Histopathology Laboratory. Dr. Kazamel graduated from medical school at the University of Mansoura, Egypt. He completed his neurology residency at UAB, followed by a neuromuscular medicine fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
