$220,000 Two year Pledge (2018 and 2019)
For the years 2018 and 2019, the CRFJB is supporting the research of Dr. Jill Chang a neonatologist at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and faculty at Northwestern University. Dr. Chang’s mission is to study the role of perinatal brain injury on an infant’s motor development. She hopes to discover how certain injury leads to conditions such as cerebral palsy, with the goal of early identification of at risk babies and potential therapeutic interventions.
