National Neurology Grand Round & Joint Adult and Pediatric Symposium

Estimados académicos,

Les compartimos la invitación que nos hace el Dr. Morris Freeman y su equipo al "National Neurology Grand Round & Joint Adult and Pediatric Symposium":

The next National Neurology Grand Round will take place on Friday, November 26th at 10:55 am ET (Toronto). It will be the keynote talk of the next larger joint symposium on transition care hosted by the Divisions of Adult and Pediatric Neurology, University of Toronto. In addition to the National Neurology Grand Round, all are welcome to attend the full symposium.

Our second symposium will feature visiting professor Dr. Hope O’Brien from Cincinnati, Ohio (headache) as well as local speakers from existing transition care programs in the division. We wish to collaborate with other programs within the University of Toronto, across Canada and globally with the goal of sharing information and experiences on transition care and advance this field for all patients with neurological conditions. Please find the attached information for the event; registration required.

 Register in advance for this meeting:

Dr. Hope O'Brien earned her Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience with Honors Distinction for Research at the University of Rochester (NY) before completing her Medical Doctorate at University of Cincinnati. After a year of study in adult medicine at The Christ Hospital, she completed residency training in Adult Neurology at University of Cincinnati. She then studied Headache Medicine and was recruited to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center as faculty. There she directed the Headache Fellowship Program, training other doctors in the practice of headache medicine. She also established the Young Adult Headache Program that serviced late adolescents and young adults using a multidisciplinary approach to headache management. Her research endeavors and unique practice, serving both pediatric and adult patients, earned national and international acclaim. In 2018, she completed an Executive MBA at Xavier University. She has been appointed to several expert committees, with leadership roles in the American Academy of Neurology and American Headache Society. She is on the accreditation committee of the United Council of Neurological Subspecialties and is on the Medscape/AHS Advisory Board Migraine Center of Excellence. She is board certified in Neurology and Headache Medicine and is founder and CEO of Headache Center of Hope.

Recurrent headaches are common and can persist through a person’s development. Many clinicians find it difficult to treat intractable headaches in adult. Unfortunately, limited information exists on how to capture and prevent intractable cases during the transition phase of adolescents as they become adults. During this presentation, you’ll be better equipped with ideas and tools that will help navigate patients that require on-going headache management, into successful transition.
