The 25th Annual Vanderbilt Neurology Stroke and Neuroscience Symposium will be held May 12 as a hybrid event, in person at the Hilton Garden Inn Nashville Vanderbilt and online.

Thomas Devlin, MD, PhD, world-renowned for contributions to many of the medical breakthroughs in the diagnosis and treatment of stroke, will present the keynote address, “Data-Enhanced Stroke Care: The Rise in Artificial Intelligence.” Vanderbilt faculty will present talks about technological advances in stroke care and rehabilitation. Matthew Schrag, MD, PhD, assistant professor of Neurology, directs the symposium.

Learning objectives include:

  • Apply current stroke guidelines to clinical practice.
  • Diagnose and treat vascular complications of emerging treatments for Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Understand recent clinical trial results and apply appropriate changes to clinical practice.
  • Recognize technological developments and tools that will likely impact care in the coming years.

Participating physicians and nurses can earn credits toward annual continuing education requirements.

Devlin, director of the CHI–Memorial Stroke & Neuroscience Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and professor at the University of Tennessee College of Medicine, Chattanooga, is also president and chief medical officer of the NeuroScience Innovation Foundation, and the founder and director of the Chattanooga Center for Neurologic Research.
