Featuring an Exclusive Site Tour of Emory University Medical Center's state-of-the-art Neuroscience Facilities

Dear Healthcare Leader:
As the demand for neurological services increases, and with new technologies and procedures arriving daily, healthcare leaders must be able to provide high-quality and cost-efficient care under tight budgets, exceed the complex medical needs of the growing patient population and look beyond the acute care setting to become more "patient-centric". Then the question becomes: "How do you achieve this?"

With completely revised content, thought-provoking case studies and inspiring speakers, this one-of-a kind, not-to-miss educational conference is again set to bring you fascinating talks from top neuroscience programs around the nation and amazing networking opportunities with key leaders.

Register today for the best business-focused Neuroscience event of the year. Learn what you are doing well, where others are doing better. Join us. Be a part of the dialogue.
