The Hawaii Neurological Society will host its second annual CME event in memory of Dorothy Chu-Krushelnycky, MD, PhD, who died of cancer on June 19, 2008, at the age of 48.
Chu-Krushelnycky immigrated to Hawaii at the age of four. Although she was afflicted with polio, she persevered through graduate school, earning a PhD in Neurosciences, and then an MD from the University of Michigan. After completing her neurology residency and neuromuscular fellowship at University of California at San Diego, she joined the staff of Kaiser Permanente Hawaii in 1994 and practiced until illness caused her to retire in 2006. Dorothy had an infectiously joyful personality and her legacy of caring for patients lives on today.
This year we invite everyone to supplement their annual CME requirements at the Hawaii Neurological Society's Second Annual Trends in Neurological Medicine on Halloween, October 31, at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel. Travel to Hawaii has seldom been more affordable and the weather is (almost) always perfect.
This CME conference is approved for up to 6.75 hours of category I CME and covers a wide range of neurologic topics with both local and internationally known speakers. Topics include Neurostimulation, Neuroprotection in MS, Treatment of Chronic Refractory Migraines, Generic Medications for Epilepsy, Advances in Neurointerventional Radiology, Imaging Techniques for Stroke, Optimizing Cerebral Perfusion in Neurologically Critically Ill Patients, and an Update on Muscular Dystrophies.
