13th EPNS Congress: 18-21 September 2019, Athens, Greece save the date!

 

We are delighted to inform you that Greece will be hosting the 13th EPNS Congress at the Megaron Athens International Conference Centre in Athens on 18-21 September 2019.

The main theme for the 2019 congress will be:

Paediatric Neurology and Rare Diseases: Genetics & Environment, Progression & Transition

thus, coinciding with the fact that 2019 has been declared as “the Year of Rare Diseases”

Therapy, prognosis and outcome of rare diseases, as well as their progression & transition to adolescence and adulthood, represent important issues and challenges both for the family and the patients, as well as for the whole health system in general (health care professionals, industry and national authorities).

A large number of pediatric but also adult specialists, apart from neurologists, are involved in the care of little patients with complex rare neurological diseases, thus highlighting the need of interaction and collaboration needed at the highest level in order to offer optimum therapeutic options and a better quality of life.

This prestigious congress will cover, in plenary and parallel sessions, the following major topics: Emergency & critical care neurology, rare neurogenetic & neurometabolic diseases, clinical trials & registries, sleep, but also epilepsy, movement & neuromuscular disorders, intellectual disability and autism, among them.

We look forward to welcoming you to Athens!
