    living with Neurofibromatosis. The award is called the ADVOCATE OF HOPE AWARD.

    Dr. Listernick studies the natural history and treatment of optic pathway tumors in children who have neurofibromatosis-1. His clinic is a site of the Department of Defense Neurofibromatosis Clinical Trials Consortium which conducts clinical trials on individuals with NF1, NF2 and schwannomatosis. Dr. Listernick is very involved in the education program of the Department of Pediatrics.

     

    "I am touched and honored beyond words to have been thought of for this honor. The greatest privilege of my professional career has been my involvement with the NF community. Establishing close relationships with my NF families as well as my NF colleagues around the world has given me a degree of professional satisfaction that I would wish for all physicians.”     - Dr. Robert Listernick
