Annual Meeting

Get ready for 2017! 

ANCDS is proud to announce the 2017 Scientific and Business Meeting on November 8, in Los Angeles, CA. Our theme this year is Traumatic Brain Injury: From State of the Science to Clinical Application. The Education and Standards Committee has convened an expert group of individuals to present thought‐provoking insights that will appeal to clinicians and researchers alike. Our invited speakers will provide updates on neural correlates of cognitive processing in individuals with and without brain injury, the crucial role of speech‐ language pathologists in the assessment/treatment of concussion, and the application of state‐of‐the‐art knowledge to several case studies across the continuum of care. The goal is to promote ongoing discussions and evidence‐based practice to improve the care and quality of life of patients with brain injury.  We are delighted to welcome you to sunny California and look forward to seeing you at the 2017 ANCDS Scientific and Business Meeting.
