Regional Transverse Myelitis Symposium

The Johns Hopkins Transverse Myelitis Center Regional Clinical Care Symposium was a great success! Attendees got expert insight on how to cope with symptoms of transverse myelitis and neuromyelitis optica, as well as a better understanding of what's on the horizon for managing the condition.

If you missed the event, you can view videos of the presentations below. We hope you will join us in person for the 2015 symposium!
