IMSVISUAL Symposium at ACTRIMS Forum 2019

It is our pleasure to invite you to our IMSVISUAL symposium at ACTRIMS Forum 2019 (being held in Dallas, Texas, February 28 – March 2), to discuss updates on vision research in multiple sclerosis and related disorders. For the third consecutive year we are fortunate to have secured ACTRIMS as our sponsor.

The symposium, integrated into the ACTRIMS program and CME accredited, will take place on Thursday, February 28th from 12:30pm – 1:45pm. Please see below the confirmed agenda for talks/speakers during the session. This symposium/session is open to all attendees of the ACTRIMS Forum 2019.

I think this will be an exciting symposium with presentations from
several groups representing existing IMSVISUAL member sites from
around the world.

We look forward to seeing you all in Dallas!
