2018 Neurology on the Hill

Neurologists representing all 50 states will travel to Washington DC to meet with federal lawmakers on February 27, 2018, for the 16th annual Neurology on the Hill, an event held by the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) to educate Congress on the critical role of neurologists in health care.

The AAN will be advocating for:

  • Increased funding for the NIH, including research on non-opioid treatments for pain and the BRAIN Initiative 

  • Drug pricing transparency to ensure patient access to needed treatments 
  • Reduced regulatory hassles, including more use of electronic prior authorization in Medicare
