Become an influential leader for your patients and profession. Apply now for the AAN Leadership for Women program, taking place Sunday, January 15, during the 2017 AAN Breakthroughs in Neurology Conference in Phoenix, AZ. Space is limited.

Scholarship application deadline:
December 12, 2016.

Program Description

In the current health care environment, leaders are tasked with greater challenges than ever before. Faced with funding gaps and decreasing reimbursements alongside an ever-increasing need for neurologic research and care, leaders need to balance these competing demands while achieving significant results. Added to this complexity is the reality that women still face inequities as they step out to lead. With this course, the Academy continues to address the need to prepare women for greater leadership roles in both the Academy and their chosen profession. Designed to be experiential in its approach, participants will especially focus on women's ways of leading to create success today and in the future.

2017 AAN Breakthroughs in Neurology Conference registration is NOT required to attend this course.

Selected recipients will receive complimentary registration for this course only.
