It's time to renew your membership for the 2019 calendar year!  In 2018, ANCDS offered members three free webinars and continuing education hours, including recorded sessions from the 2017 ANCDS Annual Meeting.  Webinar topics included fiber tracking for individuals with aphasia, return to work for persons with traumatic brain injury, and collaborative intervention between people with aphasia and their speech-language pathologists.  We created more free resources for members through development of evidence-based practice guidelines.  Additionally, our annual conference — this year focused on advanced scientific and clinical practices for patients with neurogenic disorders — provides not only a valuable educational experience, but also a great networking opportunity for members.  We hope to accomplish even more in the coming year!
