On Wednesday, April 16, the AAN and AAN Foundation hosted an event to honor Lewis P. Rowland, MD, FAAN, for his longstanding commitment and sustained contributions to the AAN and AAN Foundation. Timothy A. Pedley, MD, FAAN, Rowland's successor as chair at Columbia-Presbyterian, served as emcee for the evening, which included a reception, dinner, and a light-hearted, spirited tribute to him. Attendees were invited to contribute personal reminiscences for a memory book—a collection of stories, words of gratitude, and heartfelt wishes for Rowland—that was presented at the end of the evening.
