CNI Board of Directors

The CNI Board of Directors is the governing body of the agency and is made up of community leaders, industry professionals, patients, physicians and philanthropists.  This dedicated group of volunteers has an interest in and commitment to the growth of neurological research, services and education for patients, caregivers and health providers. Special consideration is given to support services for those who are underserved.  All those affiliated with CNI understand the complexity and devastation that neurological conditions can present to everyone involved.  We are here to provide a neurological medical home and safe haven to address the many medical, social, personal, financial, familial and emotional issues which may surface.
