His presidential duties kept Dr. Meyers busy at this year’s Annual Meeting of the SNIS. Dr. Meyers moderated lectures, awarded grants, and delivered the yearly President’s Address. But he took time for some fun too. Along with Dr. Charles Prestigiacomo (who himself completed his neurosurgical training in Columbia’s Department of Neurosurgery), Dr. Meyers won the Quiz Bowl of NeuroInterventional Trivia.
Dr. Meyers has previously held the posts of SNIS treasurer and vice president. But he says he was “honored” to serve as the Society’s president.
“SNIS is the neurointerventional field’s leading resource for professional training,” says Dr. Meyers. “And at this year’s meeting, the educational experience remained unparalleled. The meeting was exceptionally well-attended.” They actually set an attendance record this year.
SNIS is a multi-disciplinary society of neurosurgeons, radiologists and neurologists. The doctors in SNIS are linked by their interest in the blood vessels of the brain. Using these vessels, they can provide minimally-invasive treatment of stroke, aneurysms, AVMs, and other problems of the head and neck.
In the twenty-two years since its founding, SNIS has had nineteen presidents. Dr. Meyers now takes his place in the august SNIS Gallery of Presidents, who have “greatly impacted the Society’s educational programs…prominence of the annual meeting…and emergence of SNIS into the international arena.”
Great work, Dr. Meyers.
