Academic Advancement for Women in American Neurology

Story Landis was the featured speaker at the Women of the ANA luncheon during the annual meeting of the American Neurological Association.  She addressed the persistent, disproportionate paucity of women in senior academic positions, and how to improve the situation.  In a novel and thought-provoking address, she discussed her academic positions, beginning with her service as Director of NINDS, and the preparation and accomplishments that led to each promotion.
