Child Neurology Society

Faculty members of the Neurosciences Center at Nationwide Children’s Hospital are active in leadership and support of the Child Neurology Society (CNS), the preeminent professional association of child neurologists in the United States, Canada, and worldwide. CNS is devoted to fostering the discipline of child neurology and promoting optimal care and welfare of children with neurological and neuro-developmental disorders.

Child Neurology Society Annual Meeting and Scientific Program

The CNS Scientific Program, the core component of the Annual Meeting, is planned and implemented in accordance with the essential areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). It is designed by and primarily intended for child neurologists and professionals in other fields of study related to neurologic and developmental disorders in children and adolescents. The goal is that attendees will be able to better care for children with neurological disease through an understanding of recent advances in neuroscience, neurodiagnostics and therapeutics relevant to child neurology.

The 2014 CNS Annual Meeting will take place October 22 - 25 in Columbus, Ohio. Visit the Child Neurology Society website for current details.

Nationwide Children’s Hospital is proud to once again support the CNS Annual Meeting and welcomes participants to Columbus.
