2020 Annual Winter Meeting Goes Virtual November 14 – 15, 2020.
It is no surprise that NYSNS, in the face of the uncertainties of the COVID–19 pandemic, has converted this event to a virtual meeting with a virtual exhibit hall. As much as everyone enjoys meeting in person, virtual has some advantages. We plan to record presentations and apply for enduring status for CME, which gives physicians more options for attending beyond the actual day.
The program will be open to more physicians, as we will be advertising regionally and beyond in partnership with the American Academy of Neurology, removing travel constraints for participants. Our virtual exhibit hall will extend beyond the meeting itself, giving sponsors the opportunity to keep engagement going. And just because we are virtual does not mean that we can’t set up networking opportunities throughout the event. We have also lowered our sponsorship levels from last year to account for the absence of in–person interactions.
The 2020 Annual Winter Meeting has a number of topical programs confirmed: Headache Management; Neurological Issues/Complications in Pregnancy; Workplace Issues (Burnout/ Gender Equity); Update in Neuro–Oncology; Functional Movement Disorders; Concussion/TBI Management; Diversity in Neurology/Transgender Issues; NM Ultrasound; and a special COVID–19 Panel with three chairs of neurology departments in the New York City area. Our great roster of in–state and out–of–state speakers include Alison Pack, MD; Elizabeth Loder, MD; Yasmin Khakoo, MD; Kathrin LaFaver, MD; James Noble, MD; Jason Sico, MD; Steve Herskovitz, MD, and more. The target audience is neurologists, neurology residents, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and medical students.

This activity is designed for general neurologists. Other healthcare professionals, including physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists, who treat patients with headache may also benefit from participation in the educational activity.
Paradigm shift, or shattered? The thinking around both preventive and acute treatment of migraine is amidst a radical change. From a new class of treatment targeting disease-specific pathophysiology to emerging therapies incorporating neuromodulatory devices, practicing clinicians will get up to speed on key treatment advances transforming migraine care. A case series will demonstrate how new information can be placed into practice.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
1. Describe new advances in the pathophysiology of migraine, a chronic neurologic disease.
2. Develop treatment plans in line with standards of practice for acute and preventive management of episodic and chronic migraine.
3. Discuss unmet patient needs and burden of episodic and chronic migraine.
4. Analyze safety and efficacy data for emerging therapies in acute and preventive treatment of migraine relative to current standards and clinically meaningful outcomes.
