Ambassador Program
Mumbai - February 21-23, 2014

The Neurology Update Mumbai was a three day program which took place February 21-23, 2014 in Mumbai, India. There were 850 participants which accounted for over two thirds of India’s approximately 1200 neurologists. Many doctors in India find it hard to travel to conferences outside of India, and therefore a meeting such as this provides an invaluable opportunity to gain a global perspective of state of the art practices in neurology.
