allied specialty organizations.
A proactive and multi-dimensional representation of the specialty and its memberships’ socioeconomic
interests in Washington, D.C., collaboratively advocating on behalf of all aspects of neurosurgery and
health-care reform for all of medicine in this time of rapidly evolving change in U.S. health care.
Ongoing focus on promoting appropriate interaction with related neurosurgical industry partners, and
actively collaborating together to ensure both superior care as well as safety for patients.
Along with the AANS’, NREF’s and NPA’s physician leaders, professional association management staff, all
