Dear Neurologists and Neurosciences Colleagues
Neurology is one of the medical specialties that has underwent the most changes. Nothing is more outdated (and dangerous) than the concept that the neurologist makes diagnoses with names of famous 19th century European doctors, but little for patients. It is a challenge for the neurologist to remain on the diagnostic and therapeutic frontline.
In this exciting scenario of Neurosciences, the 28th Brazilian Neurology Congress is getting near. We will have a joint edition with the Pan-American Neurology and International Tropical Neurology Congresses, organized in cooperation with the World Federation of Neurology, with the participation of internationally renowned specialists, from the American continent and Brazil, who will present to us the new paths for our specialty. In the event on October 11-14 in São Paulo, we intend to update you in the advances in Neurology findings and help to incorporate them in your clinical practice.
We introduced changes in the traditional congress schedule, bringing the content from the Pre-Congress courses to the general schedule. We will have activities that emphasize practical knowledge, its applicability in the day by day, with case discussions, images and videos conducted by specialists, debates about controversial topics in controversial situations, specialists pointing out the most frequent mistakes in the management of neurological conditions, in a dynamic and interactive format. In a world where information is in the palm of our hands, we need the specialists’ experience to help us filter and absorb them.
To learn in a relaxed and fun environment, we scheduled ludic sessions, in a fun and relaxed environment. We will bring back the traditional Neurocup and the Neurology Challenge session, where presenters and the audience face each other to solve difficult cases in neurology and social activities.
São Paulo hopes to see you soon.
We count on your presence.
For many centuries, São Paulo was a rather unexciting city. This changed radically with the arrival of great waves of immigrants at the end of the 19th century, followed by migrants from other parts of Brazil in the early 20th century. They were attracted by the coffee plantations and later by industry and the service sector. In this way, the city grew and new traditions took root. Today, the capital of the State of São Paulo is, besides being an important economic and financial hub, one of the main centers for the development of new trends, culture and entertainment in Brazil.
