From the President of the AUPN

The American Neurological Association (ANA) recently held its 141st Annual Meeting in Baltimore, MD. There were more than 900 registrants on hand to take part in the 3 days of outstanding research and scientific presentations, career development programming, and networking and mentoring opportunities. This meeting would not have been possible without the engagement of the 190 speakers, Scientific Program Advisory Committee and Professional Development Committee members, the Board of Directors, and many ANA members from around the US.

This year we were pleased to have the largest number of abstracts ever submitted to the ANA meeting. Lead authors of accepted abstracts had the opportunity to present during two lively poster sessions. The top ranked abstracts were also selected to present during the newest addition to the meeting, short data blitz presentations, which took place during the main symposia. As anticipated there was a good deal of foot traffic at the poster sessions. This year, ANA committee member judges canvassed the poster hall, as they assessed posters for prizes. Winning poster presenters were announced just before the Presidential symposium on the final day of the meeting. These awards were simultaneously announced on social media. 

On the whole, this was an outstanding meeting that gave the academic neurology community the opportunity to connect and share knowledge on a broad range of scientific and career development topics.

Be sure to save the date for the ANA's 142nd Annual Meeting, which will be held 
October 15-17, 2017 in San Diego, CA.
