45th Annual Southern Pediatric Neurology Society Meeting in New Orleans

Welcome to

The Southern Pediatric Neurology Society (SPNS) is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1975. We have met in New Orleans each March. The meeting provides a forum for medical students, residents, physicians, nurses, and others in the Pediatric Neurology field of practice to present their research and interesting case studies.

The COVID 19 pandemic has caused the postponement of the 45th meeting planned for 2021.
We are now meeting again in March 2022. See details below.”

Our objective is to provide attendees with useful information from practice-based retrospective studies and case reports in order to enhance their knowledge base and meet their academic and practice-based needs. Further, we direct our efforts primarily towards our junior members (students, residents, and fellows), providing them a platform for the presentation of new information and a forum for open discourse with senior pediatric neurology faculty.
