I just booked my tickets to the American Academy of Neurology Conference in San Diego. The last time I was there, I was working as Line Producer on a documentary about Comic Con. I was managing a 25 camera crew and directing wookies and storm troopers to their interviews.
This year I submitted an abstract on neuromuscular disease and it was accepted to the Child Neurology panel. I’ll be presenting a poster there in March, along with the co-authors who have been incredible mentors.
Times have certainly changed. I probably won’t see any wookies this year…
