From the President of the AUPN

Greetings!  It is a special honor and a privilege to begin my term as President of the Association of University Professors of Neurology. Our outgoing President, Dr. David Fink, deserves an enormous amount of gratitude for his visionary leadership and guidance over the past two years. Under his leadership, the AUPN created a new governance structure which allows even more members to be involved in guiding the association; the weekly President’s message was launched to keep Chairs informed of critical issues and activities on a weekly basis; and a Program Committee was created to ensure the most meaningful topics were presented and discussions were held amongst Chairs of academic neurology departments.

I would also like to take this moment to thank our Council members for their hard work and commitment to their various roles and responsibilities. I am honored to work with a group of talented individuals who are dedicated and engaged in fostering the development of academic neurology’s educational, research and patient care programs. I consider myself very fortunate to have this opportunity to represent our members and will work hard to meet your expectations.

Over the next year I am committed to building on the initiatives for which the foundation has been laid.  We hope to engage and be responsive to as many of your neurology teams as possible. Please feel free to share your thoughts with me and the AUPN council about additional opportunities that you feel the AUPN can take advantage of to serve our academic neurology leaders.  I am looking forward to continuing our work together.  Being elected President is a special honor for me, and I will do my best to serve you, our members during my term.

Thank you,

Karen C. Johnston, MD, MSc
President AUPN
