 Allison Brashear, M.D., chair of Neurology at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, has been recognized by DePauw University for her outstanding community service and will be presented with a 2008 Community Leadership Award during DePauw’s Alumni Reunion Weekend in June.
Brashear has participated in a multitude of community leadership programs, including the Leadership Development for Physicians in Academic Health Centers at the Harvard School of Public Health, the American Association of Medical Colleges Mid-Career Leadership Program and the American Academy of Neurology Leadership Program. She was selected as a fellow in the Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine program. She is the past president of the Indiana Neurological Society and is a fellow of the American Academy of Neurology, the American Neurological Association, the American Association of Electrodiagnostic Medicine and Movement Disorder Society.
