Dr. Patterson notes, “It is truly an honor and a pleasure to work with The Neuropathy Association. The Association provides invaluable educational resources for patients, as well as improved awareness and support of research efforts in the field. I look forward to working with the neuropathy community to bring help, hope, and healing to the millions living with neuropathy.”

The Neuropathy Association’s Medical Advisory Committee is comprised of clinicians and researchers—experts in the field of neuropathy—who volunteer their time and expertise support the Association’s mission: to bring help, hope, and healing to the neuropathy community. With guidance from this Committee as well as the Neuropathic Pain Management Medical Advisory Council, the Association developed a stellar program in 2010—the first-ever national Neuropathy Summit with back-to-back physicians and patients conferences—that was themed around neuropathic pain. The Committee members have also been contributing to the educational content featured in our publications, webinars, Facebook Chats, and our website, www.neuropathy.org as well as representing the Association at various professional and advocacy meetings across the country and in the media to help ensure we bring much-needed attention to the growing neuropathy epidemic.
