In conjunction with this event, we are pleased to announce the annual SLHS Spring Symposium will take place on April 27, from 11:00-12:30pm in the Aztec Student Union Theater.
This year Dr. Royya Modir (UCSD Medical Center) will be presenting “Stroke Update 2015”
Abstract: This course will give an overview of multiple aspects of stroke including etiology, epidemiology, prevention, and acute stroke care. Acute stroke care has drastically changed in 2015 as a result of the findings of the newest endovascular therapy trials (MR CLEAN, ESCAPE, EXTEND-IA, SWIFT PRIME). This course will cover the findings of these trials and discuss how we translate these findings into best clinical practice with a streamlined acute stroke care pathway.
This event is being hosted by the LANGUAGE AND NEUROSCIENCE GROUP, NATIONAL STUDENT SPEECH, LANGUAGE AND HEARING ASSOCIATION, SDSU CHAPTER and the SCHOOL OF SPEECH, LANGUAGE, AND HEARING SCIENCES, and the COLLEGE OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES.
