    The most critical component of the immune system is the lymphatic system—it's vital for protecting us from illness and disease-causing inflammation. Basically, the lymphatic system is an inner “drainage system” of the body. It's a crisscrossing network of lymph nodes and blood vessels that transport fluids from the blood and into tissues around the body and vice versa. While the primary role of the lymphatic system is to protect the body against threats—such as infections and cancer cells—it also keeps fluid levels in balance. Oftentimes, people overlook the fact that obesity or being overweight can have a significant impact on lymphatic drainage.

    TAMPA, FL (December 17, 2019) – The Hillsborough County Osteopathic Medical Society (HCOMS) has named Dr. Deborah Boland, D.O., MSPT, Neurologist, Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and owner of Be Mobile Neurology, as their "Physician of the Year" for 2019. This prestigious award is presented to a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) who has made significant contributions to both the osteopathic profession and the local community. Dr. Boland is one of only a handful of Movement Disorder specialists in the Tampa Bay area and is a pioneer in the mobile delivery of neurological services.


    Dr. Boland said, “I am so honored and humbled to be recognized by my colleagues and friends with this award.

Through my practice, Be Mobile Neurology, I am working to offer a more personalized and affordable approach to healthcare, improving outcomes for my patients.”

Be Mobile Neurology is the only mobile neurology practice in Tampa Bay and is leading trends nationally.

Dr. Boland earned her medical degree from Des Moines University College of Osteopathic Medicine, which has a rich osteopathic history and is one of the oldest osteopathic medical schools in the country.


    Following medical school, she completed her internship and neurology residency at the University of Illinois College of Medicine/OSF Saint Francis Medical Center. Dr. Boland went on to complete fellowship training specializing in Movement Disorders at Duke University, and she served as an Assistant Professor of the Movement Disorders Center at Georgia Regents University’s Department of Neurology.


    Since January 2018, Dr. Boland has served as a Governor on the Hillsborough County Osteopathic Medical Society Board. She also is a member of the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society, the American Academy of Neurology, the American Osteopathic Association, and Working Women of Tampa Bay.
