Dr. Dewan was inspired to become a neurosurgeon when her mother was rushed to Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital in 2000 with a ruptured aneurysm. The late Dr. Douglas Johnson performed her cranial surgery and she recovered well. Dr. Johnson was the first neurosurgeon that Dr. Dewan had ever met, and was one of the key people that lead her to pursue neurosurgery as a career choice. She now mentors young women and men who are interested in neurosurgery. She volunteers her time to help indigent patients with complex neurosurgical issues in Southern India at the AIMS Hospital Group, or Amrita. She also serves on the executive board of directors for The Allendale Shelter Club, a foster home for children in Lake Villa, Illinois. She is currently assisting with a radioshow/podcast launch to broaden awareness to girls/young women regarding careers in medicine and business.
