Columbia Neurosurgeons Speak at American Heart Association’s 2014 International Stroke Conf

ISC 2014This week, February 12-15, 2014, six thousand people from around the globe will fill the San Diego Convention Center in a group effort to improve stroke prevention and treatment.

The event is the 2014 International Stroke Conference (ISC 2014) hosted by The American Heart Association, and two of our stroke specialists Dr. E. Sander Connolly and Dr. Sean Lavine have been invited to speak. Dr. Philip Meyers, the current president of the SNIS*, and our New Jersey affiliates, Dr. Dorothea Altschul and Dr. William Christopher Fox, will also be there to learn and engage with their colleagues. 

The International Stroke Conference is the world’s largest meeting dedicated to the science and treatment of cerebrovascular disease. This 2½-day conference features more than 1,500 presentations that emphasize basic, clinical and translational sciences as they evolve toward a more complete understanding of stroke pathophysiology with the overall goal of developing more effective prevention and treatment.– American Heart Association

At the meeting, Dr. Connolly is one of the leaders invited for a Fellow and Early Career/Stroke Leader Roundtable Luncheon and Dr.Lavine has been asked to moderate a session titled Vascular Malformations Oral Abstracts. 

The physicians here in the Department of Neurosurgery at Columbia University Medical Center share an unwavering commitment to improving the health of our patients. Innovations in the field of neuroscience are occurring at a faster pace than ever before and attending conferences like these benefits our patients by allowing our physicians to learn and collaborate with their peers at the forefront of innovation.
