The American Neurological Association (ANA) is a professional society of academic neurologists and neuroscientists dedicated to advancing the goals of academic neurology; training and educating neurologists and other physicians in the neurologic sciences; and expanding the understanding of diseases of the nervous system and the ability to treat them. The ANA promotes research into the causes and treatment of diseases of the nervous system by attracting promising physicians into academic neurology and supporting their development as well as advocating financial support from government, industry, and individuals. In addition, the Association is committed to disseminating knowledge about the nervous system and its diseases by presenting new scientific basic and clinical information at an annual meeting, publishing a scientific journal, and formulating and promoting high standards of neurologic practice. The ANA also formulates and promotes policies and actions that will support the goals of academic neurology by setting guidelines and assuring excellence in programs that train and educate physicians in neurology, raising the standard of neurologic training of all physicians, and providing a unified voice for academic neurology. The American Neurological Association, in association with the American Academy of Neurology and the Child Neurology Society, sponsors a Neurology Public Policy Fellowship that provides the opportunity for neurologists to participate in public policy health care discussions by working in an office or committee of Congress or the Administration for six months to one year. The American Neurological Association also publishes the "ANA Newsletter"; conducts regular meetings and symposia; and maintains a web site on the Internet.
