Maria Houtchens, MD

Clinician, Clinical Director, Brigham Multiple Sclerosis Center, BWH; Assistant Professor, Neurology, HMS
Dr. Houtchens is a Moscow-born, ethnically Jewish neurologist at the BWH, who has been involved in procuring medical supplies and relief efforts shortly after the beginning of the Russian invasion in Ukraine. This work has thus far relied on individual efforts of specific providers. Dr. Houtchens has reached to BWH hospital leadership to streamline supplies’ acquisition (Bernard Jones, BWH). She is interested in organizing a larger fundraiser to involve community leaders, MGB providers and leadership and other relevant parties, to benefit Ukraine.
