A farewell to a great WFNN team member

The WFNN is sending a shout out of great thanks to JD Meacham who served on the WFNN Board for a long time and worked with WFNN legends like Viriginia Prendergast. JD spent a number of years supporting the WFNN and neuroscience cause and was instrumental in helping the executive Board (over the years) meet their goals. He was a pleasure to work with and we will miss him. He now resides in beautiful Washington state (US) with his dogs. We wish him all the best in finally being able to sit on his porch, overlooking the spectacular mountains close by. Thanks JD!
