The Dell Children’s Neurofibromatosis Clinic has once again received Affiliate Clinic Status approval as a member of the NF Clinic Network of the Children’s Tumor Foundation.
The NF Clinic Network recognizes clinics that provide comprehensive medical care to individuals with NF, foster patient education, and encourage participation in clinical research trials and the NF registry. Our NF clinic is co-directed by pediatric neurologist Manikum Moodley, MD, former co-director of the Cleveland Clinic Neurofibromatosis Center, and pediatric neuro-oncologist Virginia Harrod, MD, PhD. Karla Robles Lopez, MD, PhD, from the Pediatric Neurosciences Program staff serves as the clinic coordinator.
The Neurofibromatosis Clinic first received Affiliate Clinic Status in 2021, a major accomplishment for a new program. The clinic will continue hosting its annual NF Family Day each fall, a daylong event co-sponsored by the Dell Children’s Neurofibromatosis Center of Excellence, UT Health Austin Pediatric Neurosciences at Dell Children’s, and the Children’s Tumor Foundation.
