About Neurology Now
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.
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. The premier issue will feature a cover story about actress Teri Garr who has been living with MS for several years.
