“All of us at duPont are extremely proud to be a part of the CPRN Community. It was a great honor to have Paul Gross here to kick off our new CP Grand Rounds, and we were excited to have him here, visiting with all the clinicians and researchers to brainstorm about research opportunities to improve the lives of our patients and their families,” explained Dr. Shrader.
Gross also spoke at the annual A.I. duPont CP Community event on Saturday, November 3, 2019 which was attended by 80 individuals and families who have been treated for CP at the hospital. He shared his experience as a parent advocate for research for his 13-year-old son. The annual event features speakers, breakout sessions and a vendor fair for families of children with CP and provides a tremendous opportunity for community members to engage with clinicians and therapists without the time pressures of clinic or other hospital engagements.
