Our Partners

Collaboration is at the core of our mission.  While the Child Neurology Foundation is in a unique position to serve the overarching needs of all members of the child neurology community and seeks to fill the unmet needs not addressed by disease-specific advocacy and support groups, we recognize that collaborative initiatives generate steadier progress and stronger outcomes and, ultimately, provide greater value for the children we serve.

Toward that end, we welcome the opportunity to speak to you about your role in the child neurology community, your passions and purpose, and how a handshake acknowledging support of one another’s missions opens the door for future collaborative opportunities.

Child Neurology Foundation does not have an official advocacy membership program at this time. We simply want to continue to strengthen connections between all members of the child neurology community by staying apprised of the many initiatives that will lead to the realization of our vision:  A world in which all children affected by neurologic disorders reach their full potential.

If you are interested in partnering on a specific project or simply want to connect and formalize a partnership, please contact Stacia Grace, Director of Operations, at 952.846.7942 or sgrace@childneurologyfoundation.org.
