Join with Patient Groups to Advocate for Reform on Capitol Hill

February 10, 2009


Health care reform is at the forefront of the 111th Congress. The time is right for physicians and patients to speak up for the unique needs of neurologic patients. If you're not able to attend Neurology on the Hill this year, there are still several opportunities to come to Washington, DC, this spring to make your voice heard. The AAN Professional Association has been fortunate to collaborate with these groups to make sure that access to care is protected. Please consider participating in one of the Hill Day events below.
