The Cerebral Palsy Research Network (CPRN) announced its second webinar in its MyCP Webinar Series entitled a “Report from the CPRN Cerebral Palsy Registry” would be open to the public on Thursday, April 23 at 8 pm via Zoom. Dr. Garey Noritz, a developmental pediatrician and the Director of the Comprehensive Cerebral Palsy Program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, will present the initial findings from the CP registry which includes both children and adults. This 20-minute presentation will be followed by an open Q&A with Dr. Noritz.
Dr. Noritz is the principal investigator for the CPRN CP Registry which gathers medical, surgical and outcome data from patients during clinical care. The CPRN CP Registry is critical infrastructure to accelerate CP research and was created in response to the strategic plan for cerebral palsy issued by the National Institutes of Health following a workshop on the state-of-the-science and treatment in CP in late 2014. This presentation has been crafted specifically for the CP community to understand CPRN’s focus on research to improve outcomes in CP.
Interested participants need to register for the webinar to be sent instructions for joining. Webinars will be recorded and posted for later viewing. The MyCP Webinar series includes one presentation per month on different aspects of CPRN’s research studies. Please join us!
