Neurology on the Hill Takes Place March 8-9, 2010

July 6, 2009


Mark your calendars now. The eighth annual Neurology on the Hill will take place in Washington, DC, March 8–9, 2010. The online application will be available to members in early October. This event, which brought 104 Academy members to Capitol Hill in 2009, gives attendees an opportunity to:

  • Learn about current health care policy affecting neurology
  • Hear from Congressional leaders about the political process
  • Educate lawmakers on the needs of Americans affected by neurologic disease

No prior experience is necessary–selected participants will be provided with tools, information, and speaking points to effectively address the Academy's concerns on specific health care policy issues. Those applying should be aware that the Academy focuses on the number of congressional districts represented when selecting attendees, as well as bringing physicians who have not previously had a chance to attend Neurology on the Hill.
