Timothy Sanford, MD, who recently graduated from our Residency Program, was honored by the American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM) with the organization’s Golseth Young Investigator Award.

The award was established in 1998 to honor Dr. James Golseth, a founding member of the organization, and is presented annually for original research in neuromuscular and electrodiagnostic medicine. The research is judged based on scientific merit, methodology, manuscript form and the researcher’s contributions to the project. According to the AANEM, Sanford's winning abstract was chosen from a record number of submissions.

Sanford formally received the award at the AANEM’s annual meeting, in October 2015 in Hawaii. At the meeting he presented his award-winning research, Correlation between Ultrasound Measures of the Median Nerve and Electrodiagnostic Severity of Median Mononeuropathy Seperated by Gender.

"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," Sanford told the AANEM.

Sanford began an interventional spine fellowship in July at Awatukee Sports and Spine in Arizona.
