What a Difference One Week Makes…

Posted on:
Our Tuesday “O&A” is typically a single topic email, but SO much has happened in the past week while CNF was at the annual Child Neurology Society, we wanted to send a brief recap.
 

At the CNF Board of Directors meeting, we welcomed our new president, Ann Tilton, MD and new member, Julie Gilbert. We bid fond farewells to Bill Trescher, MD, past president and member, Shafali Spurling Jeste, MD. Don Shields, MD received an Honorary Director position.

 

CNF announced that it had been selected for a PCORI Pipeline to Proposal Award. This award will look at peer support models for families living with neurologic conditions. CNF’s Family Support & Empowerment Program (FSEP) continues to provide support to families.

 

Dr Don Shields was awarded the CNS Roger and Mary Brumback Memorial Lifetime Achievement Award – Congratulations!

 

CNF premiered the 2017 Transition of Care Videos at our exhibit booth. Click here for patient stories and interviews with transitions experts.

 

The CNF symposium on SUDEP Awareness SOLD OUT!  The Danny Did Foundation, our lead advocacy partner in this initiative, joined us as this interactive session was positively received by an engaged audience. Dr Bill Trescher promoted the symposium live on a local KC news stationMore on SUDEP.

 

CNF exhibit booth welcomed many visitors and the new Respite Care Notebook was flying off the shelves. Get yours today!

 

CNF hosted the annual Corporate Advisory Board (CAB) meeting, where current and potential CAB partners were invited to a fun evening of CNF programmatic highlights and accomplishments, engaging talks, and networking. In addition, CNF leadership met individually with many of our CAB partners. We continue to be grateful for their partnerships.
