“We are excited to participate in the formation of a patient-centered research agenda for CP,” said Dr. James Blackman, Medical Director for CPARF. “We expect to focus a future research effort on one of the key priorities that comes from the Research CP initiative.”
CPARF will be sponsoring a dinner for the the attendees at the workshop to provide greater opportunities for members of the community and clinician researchers in attendance at the workshop to interact with one another. Dr. Blackman and CPARF Council of Governors member Lizette Dunay will give a brief presentation of the CPARF research funding portfolio and direction during the workshop. CPRN and CP NOW are pleased to have CPARF’s commitment to leveraging the information and results from Research CP. Their support will help us move more quickly toward addressing the concerns of people with CP and their families.
