Dear Colleague,
35th Annual Barrow Symposium: Advancements in Neuroscience for the Practicing Neurosurgeon in Phoenix, Arizona, is going to be an exciting annual meeting that will cover neurosurgery presentations and workshops with an emphasis on practical information that you will be able to use in your own practice.
Of course it wouldn't be a Barrow Symposium without featuring the latest in medical technology. This year is no exception. With the state-of-the-art TeleSuite facility, you have the opportunity to view a live surgery and interact with physicians in the operation room. In addition, video and case study workshops will allow you to share interesting cases and discuss them with colleagues in a small group setting.
In addition to an outstanding Symposium, we encourage you to explore the beamy of Phoenix, now the rtfth largest city in the US. This desert oasis is a favorite vacation spot for outdoor enthusiasts— with more than 200 championship golf courses, jeep tours, hot air balloon rides and unlimited hiking and biking trails—there is always something to do and March is the perfect time to get outdoors. For those who love indulging in fabulous cuisine, spending the day at the spa, shopping, visiting museums or taking in a show, Phoenix will keep you coming back.
To make the registration process as simple as possible, we are offering on-line registration that is quick and easy. As an added incentive, an additional discount is being given to those who register early, so be sure to reserve your seat, as many workshops will sell out quickly.
We hope to see you in sunny Phoenix March 5 - March 6, 2009.
