My current role is the clinical research assistant at Acorda. I actually am involved with the conduct of the trials. Acorda is like my second family. We all work very hard. But at the same time, we know that the only way for us to really be able to achieve any of the projects that we need to complete is for us to all come together and we have fun while we do it. Acorda does something that to me is very unique. The company has programs that enable us as employees to interact with patients and in the MS community, for example, we have the 'I Walk Because' program that allows employees to participate when the MS walks are actually conducted and be able to connect with patients themselves, people who have MS and be able to work with them and walk with them. To me, it was one of the most rewarding experiences I had because it was a time for me to connect directly with people from all walks of life. And they just are so grateful for the contributions that we made and the fact that someone's out there trying to make a difference in their lives.
