Operating Funds

Operating funds for the Justin Parker Neurological Institute (JPNI) are derived from grants, collaborative industrial partnerships, live accredited educational events, public fund raising and private donations.

  • The JPNI annual symposium, “Current Techniques in the Treatment of Cranial and Spinal Disorders,” began in 2003. More than 200 medical practitioners attend annually, representing hospitals and medical practices throughout the Front Range Colorado front range, along with out-of-state attendees and speakers. This live activity is planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint sponsorship of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) and JPNI.
  • The JPNI nursing education meeting began in 2011. While it is the responsibility of individual nurses to remain informed of ongoing changes in the field, only a small portion of regularly scheduled hospital CE activities are directed specifically to dedicated to nurses, emerging concepts and education in their field. The JPNI board recognized a need for nursing education and created this meeting with a goal to enhance the quality of nursing education by providing up-to-date practitioner knowledge for the benefit of consistently improved patient care.
  • Fund raising has included events such as the BoCo Loco Bike Bash, which took place in 2011 and 2012. The mission of this event was to raise funds to support clinical research for patients with neurological disorders, as well as to benefit high school athletes unable to pay for sports medicine care. Proceeds benefited JPNI and the Boulder Community Hospital Foundation.
