The Shay Rishoni Patient Impact Award recognizes and rewards ALS/MND patients whose activities have made significant and outstanding contributions to ALS/MND research and drug discovery efforts. The award aims to acknowledge individuals living with ALS/MND whose active and entrepreneurial spirit has led them to pioneer large scale initiatives that have profoundly impacted and helped shape the ALS/MND research field.
Prize4Life, a non-profit organization founded and managed by ALS/MND patients, has always believed that patients can and should take an active role in the fight against the disease. Leading by example, we wish to inspire other ALS/MND patients for action, thereby harnessing the enormous potential power of the patient community to fuel and energize efforts for the discovery of treatments and a cure for ALS/MND. The Shay Rishoni Patient Impact Award will not only help support ongoing patient-led initiatives but also help spread the message of engagement and entrepreneurship among ALS/MND patients worldwide and inspire them to follow suit.
The Award:ALS/MND patients worldwide are eligible for the award, which will be given at The Annual ALS/MND International Symposium in Boston in December 2017. The US $25,000 award will include travel to the symposium.
