The Neurological Institute of New York's Centennial Celebration

NEW YORK (Sep 21, 2009)

In honor of the centennial celebration of The Neurological Institute of New York, part of Columbia University Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, a daylong neuroscience symposium is being held on Friday, Sept. 25, 2009.

Please join us to hear from many of the top neuroscientists and neurology clinicians in the world — including two winners of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine — as they discuss some of the most common neurological diseases that plague our society — including Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Stroke, and Glioblastomas.

The Neurological Institute of New York was established in 1909 as the first specialty hospital in the United States devoted entirely to the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system.

When:
Friday, September 25, 2009
8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Where:
Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons
Alumni Auditorium
650 West 168th Street, First Floor
