In an article in today's Health Supplement, Professor Orla Hardiman, Consultant Neurologist and world leading researcher into motor neurone disease praised the role of the NAI as a "pivotal force for improving neurological care services in Ireland".
Professor Hardiman was instrumental in establishing the Neurological Alliance of Ireland in 1998 and has been a huge support to the umbrella ever since then, including acting as spokesperson for the NAI's Thinking Ahead campaign to improve neurological care.
Professor Hardiman received an advocacy award from the American Academy of Neurology in 2004 for her "tireless advocacy efforts on behalf of the neurology profession and patients in Ireland".
