The American Academy of Neurology in April will launch Neurology Now, a magazine for patients and their practitioners.

The academy said one reason for publishing the magazine is that patients are overwhelmed and confused by the barrage of inaccurate information from unreliable sources. Patients and their families are also often overwhelmed -- and their physicians hard-pressed -- to put the avalanche of new information in proper perspective, the academy said.

The premier issue will get a special promotional launch during the AAN's 57th Annual Meeting April 9-16 in Miami Beach, Fla. The magazine will be available to patients in waiting rooms of neurologists across the United States and also by subscription for home delivery.

The first issue will feature a cover story about actress Teri Garr, who has been living with multiple sclerosis for several years. Each quarterly issue will highlight the latest advances in neurology research and treatment. Articles will provide tips for living and coping with disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy and Parkinson's disease.
