World CP Day — Make Your Mark

The Cerebral Palsy Research Network (CPRN) is proud to participate in this year’s World CP Day.  We at CPRN, with our partner CP NOW, are enabling members of the cerebral palsy (CP) community to “Make Your Mark” through participation in CP research.  A little less than a year ago we launched MyCP.org and invited the extended CP community to make a difference by contributing to research – setting research direction, contributing your experience and interacting with clinician researchers committed to improving outcomes for people with CP.  MyCP is now over 1,000 people strong providing news, discussions and opportunities to participate in research from your phone or computer.  This past March we launched the MyCP webinar series so members of the community could learn about CPRN research initiatives directly from CPRN researchers.  Our research reaches from diagnosis into retirement so our community of people with CP, parents, advocates, clinicians and researchers are working to improve quality of life throughout the lifespan.  Join MyCP and tell us how you have made your mark!
