Neuroscience Symposium Educational VIdeos

Community Symposium on Multiple Sclerosis, Epilepsy, Stroke,
Headaches & Back Pain

To help area residents understand how problems that affect the brain, back and nerves can be treated, NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens held a free symposium in February 2012. 

Each year, thousands of people in Queens experience disorders of the brain and nervous system. The good news is that neurological problems are highly treatable and there are new ways to treat headaches, lower back pain and reduce the risk of stroke. The symposium featured presentations by the hospital’s neurology experts from the NYP/Queens Neuroscience Institute.
