2011 Saving the Brain Neuroscience Symposium
The 4th Annual Neuroscience Symposium of the Central Coast featured nationally recognized guest speakers, along with experts in the Neurosciences from Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital
Sponsored by the Santa Barbara Neuroscience Institute at Cottage Health System, the symposium on September 24 drew leading neuroscientists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, intensivists, emergency department physicians and ancillary staff to Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort in Santa Barbara to hear presentations about advanced treatments and new research findings.

“Our goal for this event was to provide an atmosphere conducive to learning about the latest advances in technology and products for this vital area of clinical care,” says Philip R. Delio, MD, stroke neurologist and medical director of the Stroke Program at Cottage. “We are thrilled to have been able to draw some of the most distinguished speakers in their respective fields. Many have told us they welcome the opportunity to interact during the symposium itself and at the pre-symposium vendor-presenter events.”
Leaders in diverse fields of research and clinical work presented on topics as varied as microdialysis, regional stroke network development and neuro-critical care. Attendee feedback consistently mentions the benefit of access to so many noted physicians participating in a weekend program in an intimate venue.
“We have been honored by the response of internationally renowned speakers and scientists to the Saving the Brain Symposium,” Dr. Delio says. “This exciting event is a high point of the year for physicians and other medical professionals in the Tri-County area, whether in primary care, emergency care, neurology or neurosurgery.”
