Members of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) were presented with a commemorative surfboard from the Hawai`i Convention Center in appreciation of their successful 63rd Annual Meeting from April 9-16.  The surfboard was signed by meeting participants and delivered to the team by Joe Davis, SMG General Manager of the Hawai`i Convention Center.

The meeting drew nearly 10,000 participants – more than 3,000 initially forecast – from 93 countries, and included world-class research in neurological studies.  The conference also included a public component, the Brain Health Fair on April 9 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, as well as a neuroimaging meeting from April 16-17 on Hawai`i’s Big Island.

Participants from around the globe left their autograph on the commemorative surfboard.

  1. What a great idea! I can only imagine the “good vibrations” that will radiate from the signatures of all who contributed their manaʻo to this board! Whether on the wall of a building or a wave, this board has a good life in store for it.
