The ANA meeting left me with a strong impression of a forward-thinking organization. Their dedication to embracing new ideas and technologies, while also prioritizing important discussions on DEI, is both exciting and helpful for the advancement of academic Neurology.

As a junior member attending ANA2023, I can say it was truly amazing. From the opportunity to meet with the board members and receive practical feedback on my elevator pitch to the ground-breaking debate on anti-amyloid therapies, this was a transformative and thoroughly educational experience. I also appreciated the opportunity for mentorship through the ANA Futures Program and as a recent recipient of the inaugural ANA IDEAS Junior Member Award.

The ANA is the place to be for academic neurology. The annual meetings help me move my own research forward through feedback and new collaborations. They also offer opportunities to stay on top of other subspecialties, so I continue to grow as a clinician. I am so grateful for the mentor who initially encouraged me to attend the ANA and all the opportunities that have developed as a result.
