Title: 2019 Neuroscience Symposium: Current Directions in the Medical and Surgical Management of Neurological Disorders
Date: Tue, May 28th, 2019
Time: 7:30 am - 1:30 pm
Location: Lang Auditorium

Statement of Need:
Neurological disorders impact millions of Americans each year. Physicians and interdisciplinary health care teams are to be updated in the latest medical and surgical treatments of neurological disease in order to offer patients the most effective treatment options. Topics to be discussed include: management of vertigo, update on diagnosis and treatment of headache, management of Parkinson’s disease, overview and advances in treatment of epilepsy, identification of causes and treatment of syncope and collapse, day in the life of general neurology physician assistants, endovascular options for treatment of pseudotumor cerebri and neurosurgical treatment of intracerebral hemorrhage. In-depth knowledge of these neurological conditions and state-of-the-science options for management will aid physicians and health care providers in planning the best strategies for successful patient outcomes.

Target Audience:
Primary care physicians, neurologists, ER physicians, physician assistants, residents, nurses, medical students and others caring for patients with neurological conditions.
