Northern New England Neurological Society Annual Meeting
October 26-27, 2018
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, South Portland, Maine
I cordially invite you to our Northern New England Neurological Society Annual Meeting which will take place at The DoubleTree Hotel in Portland, ME. Portland, as a port city, brings people together from all walks of life. It is our mission to bring the neurology community of Northern New England closer together. The meeting will present an update about latest treatments and therapeutic options across the field and discuss research ongoing in Northern New England. Two nationally well-known speakers will present their perspective to treat neurologic patients, including children. It is our desire to have an interactive meeting. We encourage you to bring your most difficult case (covered in one slide) to discuss between the experts. You can vote on the most exciting resident presentation. We will also discuss some policy issues in Northern New England. You can learn about creative arts in neurology and socialize during our dinner get together. We hope you give us the honor of joining us in Portland!
