Our commitment to improving neurological function goes beyond developing therapies. We participate in medical, financial and advocacy events throughout the year. These activities facilitate communication among healthcare professionals and patients about our products and research, update investors about our business, and provide support to advocacy groups who serve the same patient communities we do.
When Acorda was founded in 1995, we were active in spinal cord injury research. As the company has grown, we have expanded our therapeutic focus to include a number of neurological conditions. However, one thing remains the same: our support and involvement in the patient communities we serve. Our involvement goes beyond financial sponsorship. We’ve created programs, like “I Walk Because,” that give us the opportunity to interact personally with people affected by neurological disorders, so that we can connect our mission with the real world needs of patients and their families.
