New Book Series To Help Patients, Caregivers
Following up on the success of Neurology Now, the free and award-winning patient and caregiver magazine of the American Academy of Neurology, the Academy has announced plans to launch a new series of books for neurology patients and caregivers in 2009 to be called Neurology Now Books. The Academy has expanded its publishing division, AAN Press, to publish this new book series.
Titles planned to publish in the Neurology Now Books series include coping with multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, and taste and smell disorders in the first year. A fourth publication is also planned for late next year.
“With one in six people now affected by a neurologic disorder, there’s tremendous demand for the latest information on how to best meet the needs of this fast-growing population of patients and caregivers. Neurology Now Books will fulfill this growing demand,” said Lisa M. Shulman, MD, Editor of Neurology Now Books, and a neurologist with the University of Maryland School of Medicine and Fellow of the American Academy of Neurology.
“With the experience the Academy has had in publishing Neurology Now® magazine, it’s sought to advance patient care and has developed an appreciation for the needs and concerns of neurology patients and caregivers. Neurology Now Books will continue to further our mission of improving patient care and public understanding of disorders of the brain and nervous system,” said Shulman.
Each issue of Neurology Now® magazine reaches nearly one million readers. It is the only consumer magazine in the country devoted to the management of the range of neurologic disorders. The magazine offers information on treatment and cutting-edge research for such neurologic disorders as Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, migraine, Parkinson’s disease and more.

AAN Press through Demos Medical Publishing published an earlier series of books for neurology patients and caregivers that will continue to be available for purchase via the AAN Store.
