New patient magazine from American Academy of Neurology to launch in April

ST. PAUL, Minn. (March 1, 2005) Why would the leading international professional association of neurologists get into the business of publishing a magazine Neurology Now for patients and their caregivers?

Patients are overwhelmed and confused by the barrage of inaccurate information from unreliable sources. Neurology patients and their families are also often overwhelmed and their physicians hard-pressed to put the avalanche of new information in proper perspective.

For these and other reasons, the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) is launching Neurology Now in April. The premiere issue will be supported by a special promotional launch during the AAN's 57th Annual Meeting, held April 9 to 16 in Miami Beach. The magazine will be available to patients in the waiting rooms of neurologists across the United States and also by subscription for home delivery.

In focus groups sponsored by the AAN, neurologists said they needed more time and effort spent on patient education and public awareness. Neurology Now was developed in response to this need, and it will report on the latest advances in research and treatment in easy-to-read language.

"Readers can expect a health magazine that has integrity, accuracy, and balance," said Robin L. Brey, MD, the editor-in-chief of the magazine. "Neurology Now will also foster greater energy for advocacy efforts on behalf of neurology patients."

The premier issue will feature a cover story about actress Teri Garr who has been living with MS for several years. Each quarterly issue will highlight the latest advances in neurology research and treatment. Articles will provide tips for living and coping with disorders including Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy, migraine, multiple sclerosis, neuropathy, Parkinson's disease, and stroke, among other conditions.

"Family and friends are impacted significantly when someone they love has a neurological disorder, and Neurology Now will address these
