The 1st Annual International Congress on the Future of Neurology™ is a two-day comprehensive meeting that will review the latest data and best practices for treating patients in the eight core areas of neurological disorders. During this meeting, Stephen Silberstein, M.D., professor of neurology at Thomas Jefferson University, and director of the Jefferson Headache Center will be joined by 25 world-renowned experts across multiple therapeutic areas. The impact of new evidence and novel agents in the treatment of neurologic disorders will be covered through a series of data presentations, case-based discussions and robust Q&A sessions.
“Many neurologists have become super specialized and may not be aware of what new developments are happening in the other sub specialties in neurology,” Silberstein added. “It is our goal to bring together the best in our field to discuss the current trends and medical innovations to benefit our patients and we hope that all who attend will go away with a better understanding of the developments and trends in neurology.”
