About the NDNG
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 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.
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 MS, ALS, HD, PD, and 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.
The NDNG prides itself on having volunteers who serve as liaisons, and on task forces and committees across ACRM. The assistance of our members enables the NDNG to help further the mission of this specialized group to inform others around the world of advances in rehabilitation research and clinical care for all individuals living with neurodegenerative conditions.
