Medical News Day, the first annual event that celebrates the medical research community, will be held this weekend in Boston.
In honor of the occasion, we’ve collected some of the best headlines from this year’s event, in a single post.
For those of you who aren’t already familiar with Medical News Week, it’s a yearly event that looks at the news from around the world about medicine, technology and health.
The event has been on for over a decade and is sponsored by the American Academy of Neurology, the Society for Neuroscience and the American Heart Association.
There’s a lot to digest here.
We’ve compiled the best news, stories and interviews from the past year, as well as some of our favorites.
A big thanks to Dr. David M. Fenton, a pediatric neurologist and co-author of the book ‘How to Read a Brain’ for his invaluable insights.
Medical News Day is on Friday, April 21, and Saturday, April 22.
Dr. Fardon is a neurosurgeon who has been involved in a lot of research over the years.
He has authored more than 200 peer-reviewed papers, published in more than 60 journals, and received several awards.
He said that, even with the current state of medical research, the future is bright for the field of neuroscience and for our profession.
“I am excited that medical research is on track to have its greatest impact in the next few decades,” he said.
“The number of medical scientists is exploding.
I have seen it grow from one to more than 50 percent.
That is a very exciting development, and it has to do with the fact that research has to be done and it’s time for us to continue to invest.
I also think the rise of artificial intelligence and artificial health will have enormous effects on medicine.
In particular, this research will be crucial to finding new therapies and new treatments for disease.”
