My dear friends and colleagues,
The 2013 PNA Annual convention is a celebration of the end of our 40th year and yet, a beginning towards the Golden Age of our Association. It is a celebration of four decades of unprecedented leadership in neurologic education, training and advocacy .
Cognizant of the evolving needs of our countrymen requiring neurologic care, the organizing committee, headed by Dr Paul Pasco, has adopted the theme "Issues and Controversies in…" The scientific committee , chaired by Dr. Epe Collantes, took the challenge and responsibility of assembling a powerhouse of national experts and speakers to showcase our very own PNA fellows to delve into topics that would range from general neurology to different subspecialties.
In behalf of the Board, I would like to thank the different council chairs and members who willfully and selflessly offered their support and expertise in making this convention a success. My heartfelt gratitude to the officers and members of 2013 Board, namely, Drs. Paul, Willy, Arnold, Bimbo, Cel and Hans who sacrificed their precious time in their effort and desire to offer you the best. And lastly and certainly not the least, I wish to express my sincerest gratitude to our friends from the pharmaceutical companies who have been gracious in supporting the endeavors and aspirations of our Association.
Let us make this convention not only an opportunity for education, learning and sharing information but also an opportunity to rekindle and strengthen the bonds that unite us.
God bless the PNA!
