Bookmark and Share
Dr. Nitin Ron is a neonatologist and loves high altitude hiking and mountaineering. He is an associate professor of pediatrics and assistant director of the NICU at NYP Brooklyn Methodist Hospital. He has given 3 TED talks, and has been leading a research project in the Himalayas, including the Mt. Everest region, involving ultrasound of the eye(optic nerve) and the body, to predict mountain sickness. His research also involves studying the effect of meditation in acclimatizing the body to high altitude. He has just finished the first draft of his book, titled 'The Science behind Pranayama and Meditation', which he is co-authoring with his father. He constantly encourages his students to rearrange the paradigms with which they run their lives, and therefore to re-invent themselves every moment! He also volunteers as an art guide at the Rubin Museum of Himalayan Art in New York City, as a reminder that medicine is so much of an art as well as a science!
