Intrepid Denver, the gateway to Colorado’s breathtaking Rocky Mountains, is a fitting site for the 79th AANS Annual Scientific Meeting, “Discovering Neurosurgery: New Frontiers.” “From April 9–13 in Denver, we’ll explore the new frontiers we have attained in neurosurgery,” said AANS President James T. Rutka, MD. Working with Dr. Rutka and Annual Meeting Committee Chair Matthew A. Howard III, MD, AANS members have been planning all year to present a stellar and entertaining educational event. The meeting features 20 scientific sessions, 66 breakfast seminars, 175 oral abstract presentations, and more than 500 electronic posters, offering up to 42.75 AMA PRA Category 1 credits. Guest speakers include Cushing Orator Nathaniel Philbrick, and honorees include A. John Popp, MD, Barth A. Green, MD, Thomas A. Marshall, and Shigeaki Kobayashi, MD. For the second year, meeting content will be delivered digitally via each attendee’s iPod touch.
