American Brain Foundation


The American Brain Foundation’s annual fundraiser, Commitment to Cures, will be held in conjunction with the American Academy of Neurology’s Annual Meeting in Boston, MA on Wednesday, April 26, 2017.

This year’s event will celebrate the American Brain Foundation’s past and future. We will celebrate our 25th anniversary and honor Dr. Francis I. Kittredge, one of the founders of the American Brain Foundation, and look ahead to the future by sharing some of the new initiatives the Foundation has been working on.

The evening will also feature a keynote speech by 2017 Public Leadership in Neurology awardees, B. Smith and Dan Gasby. After enormous success as a model, restaurateur, and lifestyle maven B. Smith was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s in 2014 at the age of sixty-six. Since then, she and Dan have become advocates tirelessly raising awareness about brain disease including Dan’s recent appointment the American Brain Foundation Board of Directors.
