B Li young professional development fund

In honor of Dr. B Li’s retirement in 2016, the Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome Association created a new education initiative to help train new professional leaders in the treatment and research of CVS.

CVSA is excited to be partnering with the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN) to create the B Li Young Investigator Award. This award is the first initiative to be launched from CVSA’s B Li Young Professional Development Fund. The award will be $750 prize to go toward attending NASPGHAN’s annual meeting as well as a complimentary two-year CVSA professional membership.

Dr. B Li is one of the physicians instrumental in starting CVSA. He has greatly advanced our understanding of CVS pathology, diagnosis, and treatment. Dr. Li’s influence extends nationally and internationally. A teacher at heart, Dr. Li has mentored and trained young medical investigators, many of whom are now studying CVS.

Amazon Smile

Smile! And Thanks for Your Donation!

Amazon Smile is an easy new way to help the CVSA. Most of us buy online, right? And Amazon is the biggest vendor online. From books to music to appliances, toys, electronics, and clothing, Amazon has just about everything. Let’s say you’re buying a new coffee maker, and you find the one you want at Amazon for $99. With the Amazon Smile program, half a percent of that purchase, which is 50 cents, goes to the CVSA. AmazonSmile doesn’t add anything to your cost; it’s simply a donation from Amazon to the CVSA. On any one purchase, the half-per-cent that Amazon donates to the CVSA is just pennies. But if all of us who believe in the CVSA use the Amazon Smile program for all of our Amazon purchases, it adds up. Yes, power in numbers.

Here are the details. Usually when we’re making a purchase from Amazon, we go to the website With the Amazon Smile program, the only difference is that you start shopping by going to By going to, you’re telling Amazon that you want it to donate to your favorite non-profit, the CVSA. Remember, at you have the same selection, the same prices. The first time you point your web browser at you need to specify the CVSA as your favorite non-profit. To get started, enter the URL in your web browser, and log into your account on Amazon. (If you haven’t shopped with Amazon previously, you’ll need to create an account.)

Smile! It adds up.
