SNACC Has No Borders – A Message from the SNACC President, George A. Mashour, MD, PhD
Whatever your political persuasion, recent events worldwide motivate a reflection on borders, diversity, and fundamental values. Whatever your perspective on these topics might be, I would like to reaffirm a fundamental value of our professional society: SNACC has no borders. I believe that neuroanesthesiology, neurocritical care, and perioperative neuroscience will be stronger by the consideration of diverse perspectives and SNACC should be the global home for that important conversation. Accordingly, we need to ensure that SNACC-which strives to be the premiere society to serve and advance these disciplines-has no borders. Although founded and administratively situated in one country, we aspire to engage and attract a community that is global and diverse (in all meanings of the word).
If you are already a member of SNACC, thank you for your membership and your support of our field. I have two requests. First, wherever you might be reading this message, I encourage you to send it along to a colleague across your department or across the world so they know what SNACC values. Second, help me and our Board of Directors understand what the obstacles are to a more global SNACC community. In response, we can work to overcome these barriers and ensure, both in word and in deed, that SNACC has no borders. Please feel free to send comments and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
