Evelyn Nussenbaum joined the CURE Board in 2011, after chairing CURE’s first-ever San Francisco benefit. The event was a huge success, with over 350 guests including former San Francisco Mayors Gavin Newsom and Willie Brown. She is inspired to work for a cure by her ten-year-old twin children Beatrice and Sam, both of whom have epilepsy.
Nussenbaum is a journalist who has written and edited for CNN, the New York Times, Wired, and Fortune. She received a Bachelors degree from Pomona College. She lives with her family in Berkeley, California.
