NAMI Honors Scientific Researchers at the Inspiring Hope Through Research Virtual Event

Sep 30, 2021

NAMI will celebrate researchers advancing treatment for mental illness at the Inspiring Hope Through Research virtual event on Wednesday, Oct. 6, 2021, at 4:30 p.m. ET. Each year, NAMI presents the NAMI Scientific Research Awards at this event to pay tribute to our honorees and lend our support for their commitment to advancing scientific research on mental illness.

The 2021 NAMI Scientific Award recipients are Dr. Gail Daumit, MHS, FACP, and Dr. A. Eden Evins, MPH, who will present their findings during the event, which is free and open to the public. We hope the increased accessibility of having a virtual event makes it easier for the NAMI community nationwide to join us for this unique opportunity to hear about new research firsthand. Register here!

NAMI recognizes the value of this scientific research, which has the potential to improve treatment options, decrease health disparities, increase access to mental health care, and improve the lives of people with mental illness and their loved ones.

The NAMI Scientific Research Award is supported by the Peter Corbin Kohn Endowment.
