Seventh Annual Neuromuscular Colloquium

Event description:

The UC Irvine Health 2017 Neuromuscular Colloquium provides an academic forum for regional and national physicians who specialize entirely or to a significant degree in neuromuscular medicine.

It is a forum to discuss the latest topics and advances in neuromuscular medicine and review interesting and challenging cases, including several live patient presentations. Such activities are likely to improve patient care because they promote closer research collaboration and the development of new research projects between the various groups and institutions.
