Northern New England Neurological Society Annual Meeting

October 25 - 26, 2013

North Conway Grand Hotel, North Conway, New Hampshire

 The 2013 Conference was a success! Please join us on October 24-25, 2014 at The Essex in Essex Junction, VT.

Overview

Dear Colleagues,

The Northern New England Neurological Society cordially invites you to our annual meeting. This is a unique opportunity to network with neurologists, nurses, and other neuroscience professionals in our region. Students, residents, and fellows are encouraged to attend and will have an opportunity to present cases in a supportive, informal atmosphere. This year will feature many timely updates on a broad range of neurological topics. We hope you will join us for another intimate meeting that allows for productive speaker-audience interactions that many miss from larger meetings.
