2009 Child Neurology Foundation Advocacy Award Recipient
It is with great pride that I announce that DMRF has been selected as the 2009 Child Neurology Foundation’s Advocacy Award of Merit recipient. We are thrilled to receive this award from CNF, an organization that is dedicated to advocating for children and adolescents with neurologic disorders. In announcing the award, CNF states, “The Dystonia Medical Research Foundation demonstrated innovativeness and achieved phenomenal impact on behalf of the greater community. It gladdens us that we can honor the organization nominated by Dr. Jonathan Mink. DMRF is regarded as one of the strongest organizations providing advocacy while also engaging the scientific community to pursue research.”
To receive this kind of recognition for our work is a great honor. Claire Centrella, DMRF’s President, and I will receive the award next month on behalf of every member of the DMRF community. It is because of our members and supporters that the DMRF is able to fund cutting-edge research and provide support programs for children and adults who are battling dystonia. You all share in this award.
