Apr 2020: Congratulations to Professor Jon Stone who received the award from the American Brain Foundation.

Every year the American Brain Foundation celebrates those who have made lasting impressions in the brain disease community. The Ted Burns Humanism in Neurology Award celebrates those who advance the field of neurology, improve patient care and make knowledge more accessible.

Professor Stone was chosen to receive the award as an outstanding educator, researcher and clinician. His advocacy and humanism towards patients with Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) have been transformative for the field.

It is a tremendous honour to be the first recipient of the Ted Burns Humanism in Neurology Award. With this award, the American Brain Foundation has recognised the need to take people with FND seriously, combining a patient-centred approach with a scientific approach to diagnosis, pathophysiology and treatment.
