MS highlights from the EAN congress 2021


Join Professor Iris-Katharina Penner, Professor Frederik Barkhof and Professor Jeremy Chataway for the third interactive multiple sclerosis (MS) seminar of Janssen’s Neuroscience Medical Education (NSME) Forum for a unique opportunity to discuss specially selected MS highlights from the 7th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN). This is a continuation of a new interdisciplinary and interactive series providing the opportunity to gain valuable insights from leading experts and a chance to participate in discussions around some of the most pertinent topics in the MS field.

During this interactive seminar, you can join Prof. Penner, Prof. Barkhof, and Prof. Chataway in discussions on new updates on the disease course of MS and the available treatments, developments in biomarkers and insights into the hidden symptoms of MS. This is an excellent opportunity to hear discussions on recent data and the impact this may have on your clinical practice and there will also be an opportunity to have your questions answered by a leading researcher in these fields.

Please note that an application for CME accreditation by the European Accreditation Committee in CNS (EACIC) has been submitted.
