About Us

In the spirit of a true grassroots organization, The Blue Ribbon Foundation started as an idea, which manifested into a documentary, and eventually shaped a movement.

The Blue Ribbon Foundation’s mission is to foster a national public dialogue that can lead to finding the cause, cure, and prevention of neuro-immune diseases.

The Foundation’s Board of Directors consists of:
Giridhar Subramanian (Analyst, CSX Transportation)
Hannah Tsui (Entrepreneur)
Nicole Castillo (Co-Director, Cinematographer, Editor, Forgotten Plague)
Ryan Prior (Co-Director, Producer, Writer, Forgotten Plague)
Stephanie Land (Freelance writer and author, BRF’s Communications Director)
Travis Preston (Cinematographer, Editor, Forgotten Plague)
Mary Prior
Tom Prior

We also have a team of volunteers who help run day-to-day operations.

The Foundation’s current programs consist of:
–Producing the documentary feature film Forgotten Plague.
–Administering the Blue Ribbon Fellowship for medical students to study ME/CFS at premiere neuro-immune institutes

–Grassroots fundraising and community-building activities via the Step Up for ME program.
