This year's AAN and AAN Foundation Awards Luncheon was another huge success! It was exciting to see all of the winners, not to mention the array of winners and accomplishments—from promising young high school students to well-established, world-renowned researchers. As the Public Leadership in Neurology Award winner, Billy McLaughlin delivered an inspiring story about his overcoming focal dystonia to go from a right-handed to left-handed performer—and his amazing performance Sunday night at the Celebration for Research was proof that he hasn't missed a beat!
