Take the DAMN Chance: Turning Life’s Unexpected Turns into Your Big, Bold, Beautiful Life 
Bevin Farrand

We’ve all experienced difficult, unexpected situations that feel insurmountable. And too often we think “I will never recover from this.” Or we fear that we cannot truly be successful after trauma. This is simply not true.

Bevin is the founder of the Take the DAMN Chance movement, which was born out of losing her husband unexpectedly just five days after returning from a whirlwind trip to France. Bevin openly shares that experience, as well as other traumatic experiences she’s overcome, to inspire you to navigate your life with creativity and grace.

  • The difference between permission and support….and why you don’t need anyone’s permission to follow your dreams
  • The #1 way to release the guilt that you can’t be everywhere at once
  • The power of deciding and declaring what you want in your life
  • How to make the most meaningful impact on the lives of those you love the most

Of Pilots and Copilots – The Evolving Role of Artificial Intelligence in Clinical Neurophysiology
Aatif M. Husain, M.D., MBA

In 5 years EEGs will read themselves; sleep studies will score themselves; EMG discharges will self-identify!” These are provocative statements and foretell the potential of the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in clinical neurophysiology (CNP). In the last few decades, remarkable advances in AI have transformed many aspects of healthcare. AI-assisted neuroimaging allows quicker detection of strokes and mammography can screen for cancerous lesions and radiologists, perhaps better. CNP is no exception, and already commercially available programs are being used to score sleep studies and read emergency EEGs. This lecture will explore what is currently possible with AI in CNP and the remaining challenges. The responsible use of AI will be up to all of us in the field; whether we allow it to become the pilot or use it as a copilot will be our challenge and charge.

Dr. Husain is a professor in the Department of Neurology, and Chief, Division of Epilepsy, Sleep, and Clinical Neurophysiology at Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina. He is also the co-director of the Neuroscience Clinical Services Unit at Duke University Hospital. In 2022, he completed an executive MBA with a certificate in Health Sector Management from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University. His clinical and research interests include the treatment of acute seizures, status epilepticus, narcolepsy and other hypersomnia, evoked potentials, neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring, and general clinical neurophysiology. He is the Treasurer of the International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology and Chair of the Council of Clinical Activities of the American Epilepsy Society. He is also a past President of the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society and ABRET, and served as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Clinical Neurophysiology.

Bridging the Disparity Gap in Neurophysiology
Donald T. King III (Trei), BA, R. EEG T., CLTM, CNIM, FASET

Disparity in healthcare is a global issue, and the field of Neurophysiology is not an exception. While there are many causes for the disparity gap in Neurophysiology, there are also many solutions to this problem. We can be some of these solutions that bridge the obstacles that prevent patients from getting the care they need. We can do this through advocacy, donations, mentoring, education, and collaboration. The question that remains is will you answer this call to action?

Trei is the current Children’s of Alabama Neurophysiology Director. He has 27 years of experience in multiple modalities in Neurophysiology. He has served on the ASET Board of Trustees and the Global Initiatives Task Force. He is the current chair of the ASET Standards and Practices Committee. Trei is also a member of the Children’s of Alabama International Outreach Team with the goal of building comprehensive Neurophysiology Programs globally.
