Hello everyone! My name is Sean and I have been a lurker on this site for some time. I've enjoyed reading many of the discussions but feel that in order to learn better I need to take a more active role by contributing. Hopefully, I will be better about doing that. I currently work in an inpatient hospital setting. I have received a specialty certification in orthopedics yet in my current setting I find I do not use that knowledge often. I feel that knowledge of the nervous system and pain is not only more valuable to me clinically but more fascinating as well. I do enjoy being active in my free time (running and cycling) and will be curious to learn more about how the brain affects athletic performance.

Welcome Sean. I applaud you in taking an active role in your learning journey, something we all need to do. Passivity gets you no where, except to stay where you are.
