  MDS & COVID-19

Dear colleagues, 
It is my pleasure, as MDS-European Section Chair, to welcome you to the MDS-European Section. MDS-ES is the premier European organization dedicated to disseminating knowledge and understanding about Movement Disorders within the field of Neurology. 

MDS-ES strategic priorities include:

  • Preparation and dissemination of high quality education in Movement Disorders throughout Europe
  • Expanding access to MDS resources through increased MDS Membership across the European Section 
  • Increased engagement with the European Network of National Movement Disorders Societies and MDS Affiliate Members
  • Involvement of trainees, young neurologist and allied health specialists 
  • Continuation of fruitful collaboration with the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) to facilitate communication and education to trainees and the general neurological community
     

While the current global COVID-19 pandemic has altered the way these goals will be achieved, the priorities remain the same. In the immediate term, MDS-ES will continue to provide meaningful education to our colleagues in Europe in an online medium. The robust MDS eLearning resources, in combination with new regional and global content will also support the goals of engaging with our Neurological Society colleagues, by providing access to high quality educational resources to our Affiliate Member Societies and groups like the European Academy of Neurology (EAN). 

Thank you for your continued interest and engagement in MDS-ES activities.

With very best regards,
Angelo
