Dr. Lauren Beslow is a pediatric neurologist with fellowship training in pediatric stroke. She has been a member of the International Pediatric Stroke Study since 2007 and has published extensively on both pediatric arterial ischemic stroke and pediatric intracerebral hemorrhage. Dr. Beslow treats children with a variety of brain vascular malformations including AVMs, AVFs, vein of Galen malformations, and cavernous malformations, among others. Dr. Beslow has been treating children with HHT since 2017. In 2021, she worked with colleagues at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia including Dr. Alexandra Borst (hematology), Allison Britt (genetic counselor), and Dr. Elizabeth Goldmuntz (cardiology) to establish a comprehensive pediatric HHT program that provides multidisciplinary visits, genetic testing, and screening tests for children with definite or possible HHT. Dr. Beslow and colleagues work with families to provide appointments with multiple providers on the same day (often at the same time!) in order to minimize time away from school or work for children with HHT. The CHOP HHT Program received a Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Chair's Initiative grant for 2023-2025 to build the clinical and research programs. Dr. Shih Shan Lang Chen (pediatric neurosurgery) and Dr. Stephanie Fuller (pediatric cardiothoracic surgery) are also highly involved in the CHOP Pediatric HHT Program. Dr. Beslow was also the Brain Vascular Malformation Consortium scholar from 2021-2022, working with the BVMC's HHT Core on several research projects. Two of these projects were presented at the 14th HHT International Scientific Conference in September 2022. Dr. Beslow is an active participant in the HHT CHORUS registry and is working with the Cure HHT Brain AVM Workstream to identify areas of needed research and improved treatments for people with HHT and brain AVMs. Dr. Beslow also published a manuscript in Pediatric Neurology, "Cerebrovascular Malformations in a Pediatric Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia Cohort," with colleagues at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
