The ANA is challenging itself to become a champion of 21st century academic neurology and neuroscience. Given that its past was marred by systemic racism, the ANA is working hard to find new ways to rectify these exclusionary practices. To meet these challenges, ANA is redoubling its efforts around inclusion and diversity through educating the neurological community and implementing organizational changes. In line with these efforts, the ANA is hosting its inaugural Social Justice Symposium prior to ANA2020. During this symposium attendees will learn about topics ranging from the impact that social determinants have on health outcomes for people of color to health policy. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in interactive breakout sessions designed to develop actionable steps to address inequity within academic neurology and neuroscience.
