Rich Clifford to Receive Public Leadership in Neurology Award

The AAN Foundation will present its Public Leadership in Neurology Award to former NASA astronaut Rich Clifford. As a veteran of three Space Shuttle missions with 665 hours in orbit as a Mission Specialist, Clifford served as flight engineer and logged a six-hour spacewalk on a Space Shuttle Atlantis docking at the Russian MIR Space Station.

Clifford left NASA in 1997 and joined The Boeing Company in the early stages of design and production of the International Space Station. He is the recipient of many distinguished awards for his achievements in space flight and engineering. In 1994 he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Clifford lives in Houston with his wife, Nancy. They have two sons, Richard and Brandon.
