Works in progress 3. Works in data analysis or manuscript preparation phase 4. Completed research studies We are looking for speakers. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to cover expenses nor provide honoraria. If you or a nurse you know has work – this will be a great venue. We will be sending out a call for poster abstracts (we hope you keep this in mind for students and trainees with research work in neuro). Just as the symposium covers works in progress and completed works, posters will be allowed to include WIPs and Completed studies.

50th Anniversary of AANN meeting celebrated in San Diego!

Nurses from across the US and abroad converged in San Diego, California to celebrate the 50th anniversary of AANN. In 1968, visionary leader Agnes Marshall Walker formed an organization of specialized neuroscience nurses with a typewriter, a few dollars and unlimited determination. Now 50 years later, AANN has more than 5000 members and the celebration and commitment to neuroscience nursing continues.

You need to check out this article in Nature

A team of international scientists think they have found a way to identify patients at risk for Alzheimers Disease-and all through a simple blood test. We have known for years that AD is the result of a build-up of amyloid proteins in the brain. These proteins destroy neurons. For healthy people, these proteins are broken down and released into the blood stream for elimination. For people with AD, they stay put. Taking amyloid levels in healthy people versus those with AD should something startling...The amyloid blood levels are higher in healthy people...So measuring amyloid serum levels may provide insight into those with higher levels of amyloid in their brain (AD).

2017 Congress-Great success!

With the help of Dubrovnik Sun, WFNN held an outstanding congress in the beautiful city of Opatija in Croatia. International speakers, great food, beautiful hotels and an even better coastline.

Our day trips to the old cities were well organized and thoughtful. Our tour guides spoke of Croatian history, exposing the group to the local cuisine and wines as we meandered the streets.

The Congo line, singing by Stephen, our own WFNN Elvis Presley topped off the fun Gala dinner.

Nights to remember.
