Boca Raton Marriott at Boca Center


It is with great excitement that Dr. Brian Snelling and Dr. Jonathan Harris announce the 3rd Annual Marcus Neuroscience Institute Cerebrovascular Symposium at the Boca Raton Marriott at Boca Center.

Boca Raton Regional Hospital takes great pleasure in inviting you to an informative full-day symposium led by internationally renowned faculty. The program is designed to update physicians on techniques and skills needed to address ever changing, evaluation and management of cerebrovascular disease and stroke.

Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disease are active fields with changes in practice and knowledge that often occur faster than many practitioners can track and integrate. Therefore, this educational activity is being held in order to update the physicians and health care professionals of new treatments and methods in the management and care of patients.

This activity is an informative course for Residents, Physicians Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Stroke Coordinators, Neuro-Interventionalists, Neurologists, Neurosurgeons, Neuro Critical Care Physicians, and other health care professionals caring for stroke patients.
