Each year, thought leaders from around the world join their colleagues from Swedish Neuroscience Institute (SNI) as they present the latest advances in the management of cerebrovascular disease and stroke. This two-day course is held May 17-18 at the Swedish Cherry Hill campus in Seattle, WA, and includes faculty from Swedish Neuroscience Institute, Providence as well as guest speakers from around the country.
In addition, each year we honor the memory of Dr. Merrill P. Spencer, M.D. through an annual lecture. Dr. Spencer enjoyed a long and distinguished career as a physician, professor, researcher and innovator. He earned an international reputation for his groundbreaking work with Doppler ultrasound technology and was a pioneer in stroke prevention. This year, we are pleased to welcome Neal F. Kassell, M.D., a notable professor in the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Virginia.
A reception prior to the lecture is being held at the Swedish Cerebrovascular Center at the Swedish Cherry Hill campus. The reception and lecture are well-attended by the neuroscience community throughout the Pacific Northwest.
