The Cerebral Palsy Research Network will present our Adult Care Initiative at the next meeting of the American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine’s (AACPDM) Adults and Aging Special Interest Group (SIG) on Tuesday, February 28 from 4 pm ET until 5:30 pm. The presentation is open to the public and we encourage adults or clinicians who treat adults to join us.
The AACPDM is a professional society that gathers and educates physicians and therapists who treat people with cerebral palsy (CP). The SIG is open to the public and encourages members of the community to join in the presentations and discussions to contribute their lived experience. CP Research Network CEO Paul Gross is part of the organizing committee of the Adults and Aging SIG and will lead the meeting next Tuesday. Presenters include:
• Amy Bailes, PT, PhD, Clinician Researcher at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital
• Mary Gannotti PT, PhD, Professor of Physical Therapy at University of Hartford
• Garey Nortiz, MD, Medical Director of Complex Care at Nationwide Children’s
Drs Bailes, Gannotti, and Noritz have all been leaders in the network since it was founded in 2015. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A and discussion about adult care and quality improvement.
Community members interested in joining the discussion must register in advance with AACPDM. Additional questions can be answered by emailing AdultAgingSIG@aacpdm.org. Unlike the MyCP Webinar Series, this presentation will not be recorded.
