Dear Colleagues,

We, as the 4th Turkish Stroke Academy, will be holding our congress, which we had actually planned to jointly organize on December 17-20, 2020 under the name of the Turkish Cerebrovascular Diseases Society 2nd Courses Congress and the 4th Turkish Stroke Academy, on December 18-20, 2020 in online environment due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Stroke emerges as an important social health problem that is increasingly observed more frequently and that concerns all neurological physicians. There are rapid developments in recent years regarding diagnosis and treatment of stroke. The stroke directive that was published in our country last year demonstrates the determination to capture and implement these developments. The purpose of this directive is to provide the most appropriate and the fastest treatment to stroke patients. The directive also verifies that the authorization and responsibility for diagnosis and treatment of stroke belongs to neurological physicians.

We have full confidence that we will successfully organize our event as a summit for the science of stroke in Turkey with the participation of many experienced stroke neurologists as well as a great number of young neurologists and stroke volunteers that enable us to look to the future with confidence and pride.

In the congress, our colleagues will take the opportunity to present their authentic research and interesting facts in verbal notice sessions and to demonstrate their posters.

The support and participation from our esteemed physicians will ensure that we will have a successful congress like before. We believe that our congress will consolidate not only our scientific aspect, but also our unity and solidarity.

We wish that we will have a successful congress together…
