2014 The Year Of The Brain With A Milestone Event

October 24, 2014 Conferences No Comments Email Email

The first Regional Teaching Course of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) was held in Sofia, Bulgaria on October 2-5, 2014. A milestone in many regards as this event was the first Regional Teaching Course after the European Academy of Neurology was founded.


The honour to organize this first program of study was given to the Bulgarian Society of Neurosonology and Cerebral Hemodynamics (BSNCH) and Prof. Ekaterina Titianova. The event excelled in terms of organizationattendance and content.

The EAN was established in 2014 with the merger of the European Federation of Neurological Societies (EFNS) and the European Neurological Society (ENS). EAN’s top priority is to increase the availability and standards of neurological services and to advance the development of neurology as the major medical specialty. EAN has worked on supporting the national neurological societiesby bringing international knowhow to their members and young medical practitioners.


The European Council designated 2014 the Year of the Brain with the aim to “celebrate the wonder of the brain and create initiatives which will change behaviours and lead to measurable improvements in health”. An important initiative as the brain, not only provides the basis for our thoughts, feelings and other human characteristics, but is also the origin of many chronic disabling diseases that hugely impact society. The Bulgarian Society of Neurosonology and Cerebral Hemodynamics (BSNCH) rose to the challenge with the execution of EAN’s first Regional Teaching Course. There were leading international experts providing their scientific and practical knowledge on the aging brain, stroke and dementia, modern aspects of neurorehabilitation and on advances in neurosonology and alarge number of young practitioners from many Balkan countries in attendance. Julieta Trifonova, Country Manager of Sofia Office, the core PCO of BSNCH shared: “We were very pleased with the attendance of the event! While these teaching courses are usually with a limited number of participants, we managed to increase the available seats. The participants were not only from the region, but also from beyond – for example, we had a large group of participants from Egypt!”.

This is not the first international event organized by BSNCH and AIM Sofia Office since they worked together on the successfuloutcome of the 16th World Neurosonology Meeting of the World Federation of Neurology. BSNCH and AIM Sofia Office joinedforces to create a remarkable experience for all those involved with EAN’s Regional Teaching Course and to help promote “Excellence in Neurology in Europe”.
