A NEW VISION of public health care that embraces research and education on neuroscience to benefit the continent's aging population is emerging from the 15-member European Union (EU). According to speakers at the Third Congress of the European Federation of Neurological Societies (EFNS), held in Seville, Spain, this fall, the topic will have high priority in coming years.
The congress drew some 4200 neurologists representing every country in Europe, including an estimated 500 physicians from eastern Europe. It was the largest neurology meeting ever held in Europe, said Jose Chacon, MD, of the University of Seville, vice chair of the congress program committee.
