We welcome you to our community!!
Rehabilitation in neurodegenerative conditions is getting increasing attention as an effective treatment to maintain independence and decrease disability. The ACRM Neurodegenerative Diseases Networking Group (NDNG) has the goal of promoting and facilitating neurodegenerative rehabilitation research and scholarship. As one of the leading neurodegenerative diseases groups in the USA, our mission is to rapidly disseminate knowledge on evidence-based practice for improved health, wellness, and quality of life; and promote innovative biomedical research to identify ways in which these goals can be better translated into clinical practice through physical medicine and rehabilitation.
The NDNG promotes research on Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, multiple sclerosis, Huntington’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson disease and many other important neurodegenerative conditions. The NDNG values, commits to, and advocates for inclusion, diversity and equality in research development and practice.
Apply to the ACRM Mentoring Program
The ACRM Neurodegenerative Diseases Networking Group (NDNG) is partnering with the Career Development Networking Group (CDNG) Mentoring Program to facilitate the development of mentoring relationships at varying career stages. The Mentorship Application was emailed to all ACRM members participating in the NDNG on 4 March from crobinson@ACRM.org.
If you are an ACRM member interested in being matched with a mentor or mentee from the NDNG, please submit your application by 19 March at 5:00 PM ET. If you did not receive the application and wish to apply, please contact Cindy Robinson at crobinson@ACRM.org. The CDNG Mentoring Task Force will work with the NDNG Executive Committee to facilitate each mentoring match.
The NDNG strives to provide a comprehensive professional resource to our members to grow an international, trans-professional, membership of rehabilitation researchers, clinicians, educators, administrators, decision-makers, and consumers to advance their work and collaborations related to the science and clinical practice of neurodegenerative conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Huntington’s disease (HD), Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
The NDNG has the goal to improve our patient care by impacting positively their health, function, and quality of life, and influence health policy and reimbursement in order to provide premier quality rehabilitation services for our patients and their caregivers.
