Friday, September 1, 2017

SACRAMENTO– Today, Assemblymember Jose Medina (D-Riverside) honored Dr. Daniel Truong, a world-renowned neurologist and therapist.

September is Dystonia Awareness month, and hundreds of thousands of adults and children are affected by it in the United States alone. Dr. Truong’s research on botulinum toxin was instrumental in discovering its effective use in dystonia treatment.

Dr. Truong has appeared in multiple articles, TV reports, and has given lectures worldwide. He has published more than 140 scientific publications and book chapters.

“Being one of these hundreds of thousands of people with dystonia, I thank Dr. Daniel Truong, also known as the "Miracle Worker", for his work,” Medina said.

Dr. Truong has also published 6 books; one will be a documentary film.
