Program Description

In the current healthcare 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.
