ANA Leadership

The American Neurological Association reflects the full range of talent across academic neurology and neuroscience. Led by a president and a board of directors composed of leaders at the nation’s top research universities, the board manages the affairs of the ANA with the support of professional staff. Committees and working groups of the Board include ANA members at all career stages.
