The award was established in 1998 to honor Dr. James Golseth, a founding member of the organization, and is presented annually for original research in neuromuscular and electrodiagnostic medicine. The research is judged based on scientific merit, methodology, manuscript form and the researcher’s contributions to the project. According to the AANEM, Sanford's winning abstract was chosen from a record number of submissions.

Sanford will formally receive the award at the AANEM’s annual meeting, which will take place this October in Hawaii. At the meeting he will present his award-winning research, Correlation between Ultrasound Measures of the Median Nerve and Electrodiagnostic Severity of Median Mononeuropathy Seperated by Gender.

"Winning this award will allow me to present my research to other experts in the field and receive feedback in order to improve this research and any future research projects I may undertake," Sanford told the AANEM.

In addition to his speaking slot at the meeting, Sanford will receive a cash award and his abstract will be published in the journal “Muscle and Nerve.”

In July, Sanford will begin an Interventional Spine Fellowship at Awatukee Sports and Spine in Arizona.
