Child Neurology Foundation Welcomes New Board Member

News and Announcements | January 28, 2020 | cookchildrens

Cook Children's Neurology Medical Director M. Scott Perry, M.D., was elected to the Board of Directors for the Child Neurology Foundation (CNF) in December 2019. Founded in 2001, CNF serves pediatric patients with neurological disorders through advocacy, education, research and support initiatives while maintaining a close working relationship with the Child Neurology Society – the professional organization for pediatric neurologists. CNF focuses on connecting the pediatric neurology community – providers, patients, researchers, advocates – in an effort to improve the care of every child with diseases of the nervous system.

Dr. Perry has been a strong supporter of advocacy in child neurology, also serving on boards for Dravet Syndrome Foundation and The Brain Recovery Project. “I strongly believe in the Child Neurology Foundation's vision – to live in a world where every child with neurological disease reaches their full potential,” said Dr. Perry. “And that's only possible with the mission they have set forth – a collaborative approach, centered on the people most vested in curing childhood neurological diseases – parents and caregivers. It has become increasingly clear that the patient and parent voices are the key drivers of change, progress and cures for many of these disorders.”
