We are closely monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) and are taking many proactive steps for safety.

After much consideration, and out of an abundance of caution, we are cancelling the Neuroscience Symposium. Nothing is more important to us than the health and well-being of our patients, colleagues and visitors.

We are grateful to the many individuals who worked hard to plan this event, and we look forward to celebrating with you at a later date. We will let you know as soon as the event is rescheduled.

Thank you for understanding.
