 Director's invitation

The Board of the IICN invites you to attend the Annual Neurology Update Meeting, now in its 17th Year.  We welcome delegates from any branch of clinical medicine involved in the care of people with neurological conditions. From clinical advice and diagnostic tips to novel therapies and neurogenomics, the programme covers a wide range of topics.  Our speakers are some of the most distinguished clinical neurologists, all experts in their specialty fields. The format of the meeting allows time for delegates to ask those questions most pertinent to their clinical practice. Places are limited and the last few years have been fully subscribed, so please make sure you register early. 
On behalf of the IICN I look forward to welcoming you to Dublin on the 19th October.
