ANA Highlights - Create an enduring educational program!
Each month, the ANA’s members produce short learning modules on just in time or evolving topics. These 10-15 minute audio and slide presentations are focused on very specific learning objectives and provide concrete actionable advice to ANA members working in that disease area. Sponsors may choose the topical area of interest. In adherence with ACCME requirements, sponsors will receive credit for sponsoring the module on the MyANA.org page as well as mention during the opening slide of the presentation. $1500/module
ANA Investigates - Podcast with us!
ANA Investigates is a podcast series produced by the American Neurological Association (ANA). The content of the episodes is selected by the volunteer members of the ANA Education Innovation Subcommittee. The subcommittee is informed by the results of the annual educational needs assessment, as well as by sharing their own expertise in their respective fields. The episodes are released monthly and span topics from diagnosing central nervous system infection to career advice from champions in neurological research to the use of cannabinoids in neurology. The episodes award AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM for eligible physicians. ANA Investigates averages 300-500 listeners per episode and continues to grow with each new episode release.
A compelling opportunity exists to sponsor episodes of the podcast series! Sponsors may choose the topical area of interest. In adherence with ACCME requirements, sponsors will receive credit for sponsoring the episode on the MyANA.org page as well as mention during the opening credits of the show. $2000/ episode. Exclusive sponsorship of an episode is available for $5000/episode.

Advancing Social Justice Program Sponsorship
Racial minorities, LGBTQ, and women are underrepresented in academic research and those in the field may experience biases that prevent them from achieving at the top of their field. The ANA offers a unique opportunity to sponsors to help advance diversity and equity in research through an array of options:
- Scholarships: Sponsoring organizations can sponsor membership for academic neurology and neuroscience professionals who meet the criteria in a selected underrepresented category. $500/year scholarship.
- Video Blog: Each month, the ANA will interview a member of an underrepresented group, highlighting their perspectives and challenges they have encountered. The videos will be featured on the ANA’s social media profiles and hosted on the MyANA.org website. Sponsoring organizations may choose the field of study or topics of interest and will receive branding opportunities during the opening and closing of the video. $1500/ vlog
- Online Community: Providing a forum for members of underrepresented groups to communicate and share ideas in an invite-only online community is another opportunity to help support equity in research. Sponsoring organizations will receive a branded online community portal and the ANA will invite members to join the community. $2000/ month / portal
