The International Alliance Forbes Norris Award
Congratulations from TheSocialMedwork!
On behalf of TheSocialMedwork team, me and my fellow founders Bernard Muller and James Heywood, would like to extend our personal congratulations to one such person: Dr. Cudkowicz, on being named for the International Alliance Forbes Norris Award.
We believe this award was well deserved. Dr Cudkowicz is a neurologist who specialises in the care of people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). We have worked with her and can testify to her dedication to her patients and placing them first in her work and approach.
As the MND Association state: “Named after the neurologist Dr Forbes Norris, the purpose of this Award is to encourage researchers in advancing the management and understanding of MND. Awarded since 1994, this year’s award was given to Dr Merit Cudkowicz. Dr Cudkowicz, the chair of Department of Neurology at the Massachusetts General Hospital, is a leader in MND research and a passionate patient advocate. Aside from seeing patients in clinics, she has been involved in mentoring young researchers in MND clinical trials and co-founding the Northeast ALS Consortium (NEALS) – an international conference for leaders in research and clinical care in MND.” Read more…
This is great acknowledgement of a physician who is focused on people above all and a fine example for doctors around the world. Dr Cudkowicz's dedication and focus on finding solutions that are best for the patients, is an outstanding example of Hippocratic dedication and professionalism.
