AUPN/ANA Survey Reminder!
A joint AUPN/AAN Survey was sent to all departments of Neurology on Monday, 1/7/2019 to assess the financial health of Departments of Neurology. Please take the time to complete it! The information will help us track changes over time (Last survey was done slightly over 10 years ago) and hopefully better argue our value to our Deans and Health Care Systems.
