4th Annual MNI Epilepsy Day: Epilepsy Surgery Today and Pierre Gloor Lecture


Montreal Neurological Institute Jeanne Timmins Amphitheatre & Foyer, 3801 rue University, Montreal, QC, H3A 2B4, CA

This year’s Epilepsy Day will discuss the current status, gaps, and future perspectives of epilepsy surgery in general and Quebec in particular. A panel of experts will tackle important issues including indications, innovative approaches, and clinical outcomes, both in pediatric and adult patients with difficult-to-treat epilepsies. Poster presentations will feature ongoing research from academic centers across the Province, providing an opportunity for more interactions and discussions. We welcome academic or practicing neurologists, epileptologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, neuroscientists, neurology or neurosurgery residents, graduate students and trainees, nurses, social workers, as well as other professionals or researchers in epilepsy care. CME accreditation will be offered.

The Pierre Gloor Lecture will be delivered by Dr. O.C. Snead III of the Sick Kids Research Institute, University of Toronto, Toronto. The lecture will take place in the Jeanne Timmins Amphitheatre at 4:00 PM, a reception will follow.
