Southern Pediatric Neurology Society Fellowship and learning with southern hospitality.
Founded in 1975, the SPNS is dedicated to fostering interest and learning in child neurology. Presentations by students, residents, junior faculty and others in a friendly atmosphere where questions and constructive comments are designed to improve presentation skills.
Two named lectures, the John B Bodensteiner Presidential lecture and the Paul Dyken Memorial Lecture are presented by distinguished scholars on topics relevant to child neurologists.
SPNS is a 501c3 not for profit organization.
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.
