Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children's Hospital
National Neurotrauma Society membership is important to me as a practicing pediatric neurosurgeon in Neurotrauma and Neurocritical Care as well as a neurotrauma researcher as the latest cutting edge science in translational laboratory and clinical research is available through the Journal of Neurotrauma, the annual scientific symposium and other communications that are truly unique and provide important knowledge for those immersed in the field of Neurotrauma, head, spine/spinal cord, and peripheral nerve injury as well as neurocritical care.

Since early in my career I have viewed the National Neurotrauma Society and its members as pursuing the noblest of causes - to find a cure or effective treatment for the devastation of brain and spinal cord injuries. I have been grateful for tremendous collegiality and encouragement from those affiliated with the NNS and am inspired to work collaboratively with these honorable people for the common good. The NNS provides a culture medium for academic enrichment and for the personal and professional bonds that will be key to curing the terrible conditions we study.

Being a member of the National Neurotrauma Society has been incredibly beneficial for my research in traumatic brain injury. My favorite perk of membership is the savings for attending the National Neurotrauma Symposium. At this meeting, I connect with collaborators and have the opportunity to present my research to leaders in the neurotrauma field. Every time I attend the meeting, I leave with helpful tips to improve on the methods that I am using in the laboratory.
