The American Academy of Neurology (AAN) is the world's largest professional association of neurologists, and the leading resource center for neurologists around the world. The organization was founded in 1948, and now represents more than 30,000 members. It is dedicated to promoting the highest quality patient-centered care.
The 68th AAN Annual Meeting will take place April 15-21, 2016, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, where leading neurologists will discuss the latest breakthroughs in the field. There will be more than 12,000 attendees including neurologists and neuroscience specialists. Lectures, meetings and discussions will focus on common neurological problems and controversies. Additionally, there will be presentations of contemporary issues such as global health concerns. These are particularly relevant for Dr. Johnston, a Partner in Global Neurology Consultants and Director of GlobalNeuroCare.org, a 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to improving neurological care in resource limited regions.
