US Facing a Neurology Shortage per American Academy of Neurology

The American Academy of Neurology sent out a press release on April 17th, 2013 relaying a critical message about the US facing a shortage of neurologists.  On April 23, 2013, as nearly as 150 neurologists will descend on Capital Hill to encourage Congress to protect patient's access to neurologists as one in six Americans are currently affected by brain disease.  This is mostly due to the current unfair Medicare reimbursement system which impacts future students and residents when they consider pursuing a specialty in neurology.
