Neurologists from all over the world converged in Washington D.C. last week, with an estimated 13,000 attendees meeting at the 67th annual American Academy of Neurology conference to learn about new research in the field.
Last year’s Ebola scare might provide a blueprint for a response to the unthinkable: a bioterrorist attack in the U.S., some experts are saying. A House of Representatives subcommittee last week discussed what the domestic response – and over-response – may teach emergency responders in a “low probability” but “high-consequence” event.
