OhioHealth Neuroscience Sends Several Doctors To Conference

The world has its eyes on Hawaii for the international stroke conference this week.  Many OhioHealth doctors and team members attended, learning about new research and information that could be brought back to central Ohio.

Dr. Nirav Vora is the medical director of Cerebrovascular diseases at OhioHealth.  He says this conference is so important for those fighting each day to save lives in the stroke world.

"So much comes from an event like this, information that will save lives of patients all around the world," Dr. Vora said.

According the the American Heart Association, The International Stroke Conference is the world’s premier meeting dedicated to the science and treatment of cerebrovascular disease. Clinical Sessions focus on community risk factors; emergency care; acute neuroimaging; acute endovascular and acute nonendovascular treatment; diagnosis of stroke etiology; cerebral large artery disease; in-hospital treatment; clinical rehabilitation and recovery; and health services, quality improvement, and patient-centered outcomes.

The nearly 3 day conference features hundreds of presentations focused on basic, clinical and translational sciences, to help mold a better understanding of what is happening and how these therapies can be used.

In all nearly 5,000 experts from all over the world, including those from OhioHealth will be in attendance.
