Welcome from the 2019 Program Chair

On behalf of the NAN Board of Directors and the 2019 Program Committee, I am excited to welcome you to the 39th Annual Conference of the National Academy of Neuropsychology! We look forward to seeing you in San Diego, California, from November 13-16, 2019. The NAN Program theme this year is Neuropsychology in Transition: Staying Ahead of the Curve. Highlighting this theme, we have prepared a forward-looking program filled with pioneering speakers to showcase innovations in clinical neuropsychological science and practice. We are very proud of our line-up of nationally and internationally known experts across multiple disciplines. We have neuropsychologists, physicians, a bioengineer, and a pharmacist, just to name a few, and Dr. Paul Dagum is a computer scientist, physician and an entrepreneur! This year, we will also introduce a series of Hot Topics workshops- each of which will include a panel of preeminent experts who will highlight specific, contemporary updates and unique considerations in their respective fields. We hope that attendees will leave the conference with an increased appreciation for the many ways we can “stay ahead of the curve” through our collaboration with other disciplines. There will also be opportunities for networking and time to enjoy the city of San Diego!
