Who We Are

History of the Neurologic Disease
​Foundation

The Neurologic Disease Foundation was founded in Fairfax, Virginia, in December 2005. The founders include both medical and non-medical professionals. IRS approval as an authorized non-profit organization was received a few weeks later in early 2006.


In 2006 the Foundation established a relationship to become the umbrella organization for the Annual Fall Seminar in Multiple Sclerosis. The 11th annual seminar in September of that year became the first major program of the Foundation.


The Foundation celebrated its 20th Anniversary Fall MS Seminar

in 2015. A record 306 participants were present for an especially

well-received program.





​​The Neurologic Disease Foundation (NDF) serves patients and medical professionals in the neurology community of Northern Virginia. We are active in the areas of patient education, professional education, research and other patient support activities.​ ​

​NDF is a grant-seeking and grant-making organization designed to improve and enhance neurological health and education. Through patient education programs, professional education programs, research and other services, NDF works to alleviate the effects of neurological disease and assist patients with neurological disease to lead more fulfilling lives.


The Foundation has interests in all neurological diseases and conditions. Currently the Foundation’s programs emphasize Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson disease.
