Neurocritical Care Society 2016 Meeting Includes Lectures and Presentations from CCM Faculty

Mon, 10/17/2016

The Department of Critical Care Medicine had a significant presence at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Neurocritical Care Society, held from September 15 to 18 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland. Several of our faculty delivered lectures, moderated sessions, and gave oral and poster presentations.

Marie Baldisseri, MD, MPH, gave the keynote presentation at the Women in NCC Luncheon. Several faculty delivered lectures and moderated sessions, including Baldisseri; Sherry Chou, MD, MMSc, FNCS; Bradley Molyneaux, MD, PhD; Jason Moore, MD, MS; and Lori Shutter, MD, FCCM, FNCS.

Shutter also gave an oral presentation, and many others were represented in poster presentations, including Maighdlin M. Anderson, CRNP, RN, MSN, CCRN, ACNP; Michael M. Bell, MD; Chou; Cameron C. Dezfulian, MD; Jonathan J. Elmer, MD; Jody Manners, MD (Neurology Resident); and Shutter.

CCM faculty also helped direct a Professionalism and Leadership Workshop on September 18. Designed by Jason Moore and Lori Shutter, the workshop was based off of our local program, which Moore created for our fellows. Moore also gave the presentation, “Mentorship, Coaches, and Sponsors.” The workshop was a great success, and has already been selected to be presented again next year.
