Parkinson's Action Network Names New Ed

Amy Comstock Will Oversee PAN Operations

The Board of Directors of the Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) has announced the appointment of Amy L. Comstock as Executive Director. Ms. Comstock previously served as the Director of the Office of Government Ethics, a position she held for six years.

"We are very pleased to welcome Amy to PAN," said Board Chairman Jeffrey C. Martin. "She is a strong addition to our team fighting for a cure."

Prior to her appointment to the Office of Government Ethics, Ms. Comstock served as Associate Counsel to the President in the White House Counsel's Office. She began her federal service as an attorney at the U.S. Department of Education in 1988; she ended her tenure there in 1998 as Assistant General Counsel for Ethics. Prior to this, she was an associate counsel at the law firm of Beveridge & Diamond.

"I am grateful to Chairman Martin and the PAN Board for the opportunity to serve PAN and the greater PD community," said Comstock. "I look forward to working with the Board, staff, and the community towards the discovery of a cure as well as to ease the burden of this devastating disease."

Ms. Comstock received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Bard College in New York, and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Michigan.
