The 2015 recipient of the AANEM Golseth Young Investigator Award
is Timothy S. Sanford, MD, formerly of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, for his abstract, “Correlation Between Ultrasound Measures of The Median Nerve and Electrodiagnostic Severity
of Median Mononeuropathy Separated by Gender.” The research was performed during Dr. Sanford’s 3rd and 4th year of physical medicine and rehabilitation residency at the University of North Carolina. He began an
interventional spine fellowship with Dr. Scott Kreiner at Ahwatukee Sports and Spine in July 2015.
“I regard AANEM as the leader in neuromuscular and EDX medicine, and I wanted my research to be reviewed and recognized by this organization,” said Dr. Sanford.
As he continues exploring his interests in electrodiagnostic (EDX) medicine, interventional spine, sports medicine, and quality improvement, Dr. Sanford expressed gratitude for this recognition, and for the support of his mentors and co-authors, Drs. James F. Howard and James J. Hill, and also the help of the other co-authors, Dr. Matthew Harris and Mitchell Cockman, CNCT. “Winning this award will allow me to present my research to other experts in the field and receive feedback in order to improve this research and any future research projects I may undertake,” said Dr. Sanford.
The Golseth Young Investigator Award, honoring AANEM founding member, Dr. James Golseth, is presented annually for original research in Neuromuscular (NM) and EDX medicine. The AANEM Foundation has been funding the award since 1998.
