The Cerebral Palsy Research Network (CPRN) welcomes David Frumberg, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon at Yale University to join the network. Dr. Frumberg treats individuals of all ages, so his participation expands the representation of adults with cerebral palsy (CP) in the network. The NIH strategic plan for CP prioritized the study of adults with CP and several of the top research ideas established by Research CP focused on the health and outcomes of adults.
“CPRN is the most important research initiative going on today in the world of CP,” explains Dr. Frumberg. “CPRN will provide better evidence to guide our treatment of adults with CP, and over time this will help empower a bigger workforce to keep adults healthy for the entire lifespan.”
Yale-New Haven Hospital brings CPRN’s number of committed sites to 23 institutions. Dr. Frumberg’s practice with adults with CP expands CPRN’s geographic coverage of the adult population to the northeast. Other sites that treat adults in CPRN include Gillette, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, UCLA, UCD, University of Michigan, University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill.
