Each year the American Association for Neurological Surgeons (AANS) hosts its annual scientific meeting bringing together neurosurgeons from across the country. This year’s meeting entitled, “Changing Our Culture to Advance Patient Safety,” focuses on the patient-safety movement. HA staff members Aisha Heath, Director of Development, Karima Roumila, Director of Support and Education, and Ashly Westrick, Research Manager, join esteemed members of the medical community for this exciting event.
“The feel is very welcoming and positive,” reports Westrick, who has had the opportunity to participate in sessions on current research initiatives.
The AANS meeting is an opportunity for our staff to spend time with members of our Board of Directors and Medical Advisory Board who are in attendance as well as connect with the larger medical professional community. It is an opportunity for us to raise awareness about hydrocephalus and our association as well as connect with new companies in the neurosurgery field and build new relationships.
