The Burke Neurological Institute, a non-profit research institute dedicated to finding cures for neurological diseases is holding their 2nd annual McDowell Symposium “Hope for Stroke”. Expert female neurologists will be sharing the latest medical breakthroughs in stroke research. This a unique opportunity for members of the Westchester community to meet top neurologists and ask questions. The morning session will be geared toward a non-scientific audience to learn about research, treatments and ask questions about brain health. The afternoon session will be geared toward researchers and clinicians who are interested in the academic side of stroke research. Three distinguished awardees are also being honored for their contributions and leadership within the field of neurology. Between the morning and afternoon sessions, awards will be presented by the McDowell family and lunch will be provided. Guests must register for the event at http://burke.weill.cornell.edu/events
