As a Neurology Now® reader, you understand the important role research plays in finding a cure for brain disorders. Help the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Foundation raise awareness by submitting a short video to the 2012 Neuro Film Festival®, telling your story about why more research is needed into finding cures. Winners could receive up to $1,000 and a trip to New Orleans to see their film shown at the Neuro Film Festival. Complete contest rules and a video showing how to submit are available on the Neuro Film Festival's Web site (www.NeuroFilmFestival.com). The deadline to enter is January 31, 2012.
Now in its third year, the Neuro Film Festival is a contest by the AAN Foundation that aims to raise awareness about the need to donate money for research into the prevention, treatment, and cure of brain disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, stroke, autism, Parkinson's disease, and multiple sclerosis. Last year, more than 100 films were submitted and more than 100,000 votes cast.
