The successful treatment of patients who have a ruptured brain aneurysm requires a large team of health care providers. The emphasis of this symposium is on bringing together everyone who takes care of these patients to learn with, from, and about each other.
In February 2018, Duke University student Justin Gelman suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm while in his dorm room. His family's positive experience with the Duke Neurosurgery team spurred them to create the Duke Brain Aneurysm Fund, with the mission of saving and improving lives by helping to ensure the best brain aneurysm care.
This event is for anyone who treats or cares for brain aneurysm patients, and for the survivors and their loved ones. Educational credits are available.
