Bringing CNS Members Together to Make Children’s Lives Better


CNS Annual Meeting

The 50th/Golden Anniversary Meeting of the Child Neurology Society is scheduled to be held in Boston September 29-October 2, 2021. A focus on past, present and future milestones in child neurology will be frame signicant portions of the scientiic program to include 4-6 symposia, 6-8 seminars, workshops and meet-the-expert sessions, junior member seminars and a clinical research boot camp. The deadline to submit abstracts for work to be presented at the annual meeting is April 15; from these it is expected that150-175 will be presented as posters and 10-20 in moderated platform sessions. This year’s Sachs Lecturer is Jerry Mendell, MD. The Hower Award Lecturer is Jonathan Mink, MD, PhD. The first Martha Bridge Denckla Award Lecture will be presented on Thursday.

Current plans are to host a hybrid meeting to accommodate those unable to attend due to continued COVID-19 restrictions and concerns. While there is no way of knowing at this time which sessions will be presented both live on-site and live-streamed on-line, we are committed to making possible meaningful participation in this milestone meeting for all members.

A meeting prospectus will be issued in late spring, by which time we hope to have a clearer indication of what is and is not possible in the fall.
