The American Academy of Neurology’s Palatucci Advocacy Leadership Forum

I was lucky enough to participate in the AAN’s 2014 Palatucci Advocacy Leadership Forum last weekend.

The forum provides a wonderful opportunity for neurologists to learn how to:

  • Promote state and federal legislation
  • Work with the media
  • Obtain financial support for research
  • Develop coalitions
  • Organize and reinvigorate state neurological societies
  • Lobby for fair reinbursement
  • Help Draft position statements that affect future legislation

The forum is named in honor of former UCSF Professor of Neurology and AAN Board of Directors Member Donald M. Palatucci, MD.

Attendees get to practice:

  • Creating effective action plans to identify issues and resolves problems
  • Sharpen their interview skills, work with reporters, and improve confidence on camera
  • Get an inside look at how governments work and how to get results
