Associate Board

Our Role

Founded in 2007 to increase community awareness of childhood diseases, the Associate Board develops new programs and initiatives to educate the public and get more people involved. It does so by focusing specifically on children’s brain disease and disorders.

The Associate Board is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of children with brain disorders and their families by helping to fund cutting-edge neuroscience research, public education programs, and professional education. Its goal is to ease the enormous challenges that children with brain disorders face—from loss of function and lengthy hospital stays to difficulty making friends and differential health coverage.
