recently at the 17th annual Neurology on the Hill in Washington, DC. The delegates educated
new members of Congress on the value of complex, neurologic care, as well as advocated for

drug costs on neurologic patients and the need for step therapy reform to preserve the
neurologist-patient relationship.
