Hope for Stroke Survivors Symposium
May 17 , 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
The Burke Neurological Institute is announcing their second annual McDowell Symposium, “Hope for Stroke”. On May 17th, the Burke Neurological Institute will open its doors from 8:30 am – 4:00 pm to welcome stroke survivors, caregivers, families and community members, to connect them with neurological scientists and clinicians, who will present on the latest scientific discoveries and medical breakthroughs in stroke research. The morning session offers presentations geared toward a non-scientific audience. Presentations given in the afternoon session will be geared more toward researchers and clinicians, embracing the academic side of stroke research. This is an excellent educational opportunity for stroke survivors, caregivers, and their families to learn how groundbreaking stroke research is transformed into clinical treatments to help people restore function to see, talk, and walk again. Between the morning and afternoon sessions, awards will be presented by the McDowell family and lunch will be provided. Seats are limited, so register ASAP.
