Last week, PRG was presented with the National Brain Tumor Society’s Brain Tumor Champion Award for government relations and strategic communications work on behalf of American families impacted by brain tumor diagnoses.

“NBTS is sincerely grateful for the partnership and collaboration of Bracewell and PRG over the past several years,” said David Arons, chief executive officer at the National Brain Tumor Society. “Bracewell and PRG have devoted many hours of service to helping advance the voices of the brain tumor community in Washington and have extended their support to helping to raise resources and awareness through our special events. Their talented and dedicated staff has assisted NBTS in advancing important legislation, achieved a series of key policy successes that have greatly benefitted the brain tumor community, and helped drive new research funding. NBTS thanks and recognizes their efforts and is looking forward to continuing to work together to make a difference in the lives of brain tumor patients, survivors, their families and care partners.”

Specifically, PRG team members Ed Krenik (partner), John Lee (director), and Caitlin Andrews (director) were named for their dedication to NBTS’s work and goals.

“We are honored to work with NBTS, and honored by this award,” said PRG Partner Ed Krenik. “We highly value our ongoing relationship and the important work NBTS is undertaking to ensure that brain tumor researchers, who are now more poised than ever to advance a cure, are supported by Congress with the needed resources. Our work with NBTS on Capitol Hill has helped lawmakers understand the importance of supporting this life-saving research.”
