Award for Professor Paola Giunti

In October 2016, the European Federation of Neurological Associations (EFNA) held its Neurology Advocacy Awards.

These awards recognise the contribution of an individual or group to the development and promotion of advocacy for people with neurological disorders in Europe.

This year’s winners were presented with their awards at a Gala Dinner in Dublin on October 13th. 

The award for European Health Professional went to Professor Paola Giunti, an ataxia specialist. Prof. Giunti was nominated for her work in the field – including the establishment of a specialist ataxia centre – a bespoke health service made in partnership with patients.
