On October 1-3, 2015 the 5th Congress of Neurologists of the Republic of Moldova took place in Chisinau. The congress was held jointly with the works of the Symposium of Neurologists and Neurosurgeons Chisinau (Republic of Moldova) – Iasi (Romania) at its 14th edition.
The European Academy of Neurology has existed for 4 months now and many of the first steps are behind us. The latest step is that we can accept members now from the administrative side of the process. Therefore I will use my President’s Page today to explain why you should become a member. According to the bylaws of the Society we will have institutional and individual members.
Neurologists need no persuasion that the brain is the most important organ in the body and neurology and its allied specialties, including psychiatry, the most important in medicine. Just occasionally we need to remind the world of these truths. We now have the opportunity to do just that because the European Commission has declared May as the official European Month of the Brain 2013.
