Honoring Women in Neuropsychology for Women's History Month
In 1987, Congress declared March as Women’s History Month. NAN wants to join in observing and celebrating the remarkable and vital role that women have played, and continue to play, in neuropsychology. The NAN Women in Leadership Committee and the NAN Executive Board want to recognize the countless contributions of women who presently serve, and have served, as leaders in NAN and in neuropsychology. Please join us in celebrating the richness and diversity of their achievements. To that end, we want to highlight a woman of distinction in NAN.
