In addition to caring for children with general neurologic conditions, Dr. Proud is a board certified pediatric neuromuscular neurologist, meaning she has expertise in caring for children with spinal muscular atrophy, Charcot Marie Tooth neuropathy, muscular dystrophies, congenital myopathies, and myasthenia gravis.
Dr. Proud received subspecialty training at Stanford University in both child neurology and pediatric neuromuscular neurology, participating in clinical research trials for children with muscular dystrophy and SMA. She has continued this interest at CHKD, where CHKD has research opportunities for children with various neuromuscular conditions.
CHKD offers a multi-disciplinary Muscular Dystrophy Association clinic where Dr. Proud works collaboratively with many subspecialists to provide the best care for children with nerve and muscle disease. She has seen a remarkable optimism and new hope for effective treatments in children affected by these diagnoses and works with great compassion and enthusiasm with families in clinic.
