Who do we want our children to be seen by if they’re manifesting symptoms of recurring headaches, seizures, tremors or are exhibiting an attention deficit disorder?
A Certified Child Neurologist, a medical doctor who has additional training in both pediatrics and neurology.
The problem is that there is a shortage of these specialists and if something’s not done immediately, this shortage is expected to continue for at least the next 13 years.
The need for new Child Neurologists and for Child Neurology Research Scientists is a primary reason why the Foundation exists.
To attend to this shortage, CNF seeks your help to raise funds:
For scholarships to encourage first- and second-year medical students to spend their summer break working with a Certified Child Neurologist in the hope that they will choose this as their specialty.
For Grants to encourage innovative research by Child Neurologists early in their career.
For Symposia to provide professional training for this fast changing field.
In collaboration with the Association of Child Neurology Nurses, for Grants to encourage Pediatric Nurses to do research on pediatric neuroscience care issues
Just as important, CNF exists to provide advocacy and education for patients, parents and other caregivers.
Recent research tells us that the number one reason people don’t make charitable contributions is because they are never asked. Let me make it clear. Your help is needed. Please give so today’s and tomorrow’s children are properly diagnosed and treated.
