Meet the Media Committee

About Us

The Media Committee’s role is to support the mission and vision of the Asian Neuropsychological Association through communication-related activities and social media platforms. Our primary products include the quarterly Newsletter, official ANA website, and ANA YouTube channel. We aim to work closely with other ANA Committees (Advocacy, Education, Student, Resource, and Membership) and neuropsychological organizations (e.g., INS, NAN, SBN, HNS) to disseminate communication through the listserv and social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube). We also collaborate with the Executive Committee in creating special projects, such as the ANA Heritage Video Series (ANA YouTube Channel).
