Announcing the Ted M. Burns Humanism in Neurology Award

Ted M. Burns

The Ted M. Burns Humanism in Neurology Award honors a member of the neurology profession exhibiting humanism through humble leadership, advocacy, innovation, and creativity.

Named for Dr. Ted M. Burns, this award seeks to encourage current and future neurologists to advocate for their patients and their field, and to innovate practical and useful mechanisms by which to educate trainees, peers, and the greater public about important issues in neurology.

This new award is made possible by friends of Dr. Ted Burns who have created the American Brain Foundation’s newest endowed fund in his honor. The inaugural award will be presented at the American Brain Foundation’s Commitment to Cures dinner on April 29, 2020 in Toronto.
