Board Chair Award – 2020

2020 recipient

Catherine M. Rydell, CAE

The Board Chair Award is given to a key architect and builder of the American Brain Foundation—a person who has shaped the organization through their leadership and philanthropy.

This year’s recipient has dedicated the last 21 years of her career to advancing brain disease research. Her role in growing the American Brain Foundation and the American Academy of Neurology is unprecedented. Congratulations to the 2020 recipient of the Board Chair Award, CEO Emeritus of the AAN, Catherine M. Rydell, CAE.
