EFNS NEUROLOGY CONGRESS
Advancing Neurological Education in Europe!
The 13th Congress of the European Federation of Neurological Societies (EFNS) provides an unmatched opportunity for  neurologists to join over 5,000 colleagues to study and disseminate the latest research, clinical practices, and treatments. Join the EFNS Congress mailing list to receive congress updates.
