MAKING A DIFFERENCE, TOGETHER
About the NKH Leadership Board
Created in October 2019, this board was established to bring together the U.S. families and non-profits who are actively raising money for NKH research. The goal was to create transparency within the NKH community as well as accountability to the board from those who are leading NKH research. The leadership board is currently supporting two U.S. researchers who are working on several different options for a more effective NKH treatment and a cure. The current researchers are Dr. Kasturi Haldar at the University of Notre Dame and Dr. Johan Van Hove at the University of Colorado. The doctors provide quarterly updates as well as a projected budget to the leadership board. The board meets bi-monthly to discuss funding and fundraising ideas, and events.
Joining the NKH Leadership Board is for anyone who is actively raising funds and awareness in the support of NKH Research. Having a non-profit is not required. You must be in attendance to a minimum of three meetings annually. We are open to anyone who is ready to roll up their sleeves and do whatever it takes to end NKH.
