Italian Narcolepsy Association (AIN), annual multidisciplinary seminar

Italian Narcolepsy Association (AIN)

A very important aspect of our work is collaboration & engagement with other patient associations across the world and this weekend our Chair & Operations Manager are with other members of the EU Narcolepsy Association in Bologna, Italy for one of their regular annual meetings.

Since 2010, every year in December AIN have organised a multidisciplinary seminar together with the Bologna's Institute of Neurological Science (ISNB) and the "Alma Mater Studiorum" University of Bologna. The congress in recent years has been an opportunity to meet also their members before the Christmas holidays and close the year with the latest news by meeting the doctors and specialists to ask them all the questions they have.

These meeting lately are always divided in 2 different groups:

  • Patients and Families (OURS), with several experts and researchers ready for explaining to us with simple words, all the news about Narcolepsy;
  • Clinicians is a seminar with several experts and researchers sharing knowledge and teaching everything about Narcolepsy with a test to receive CME credits.

This year the AIN have invited & funded other Patient Groups to join in a unique opportunity of having Professor Emmanuel Mignot and Professor Claudio Bassetti attend their congress.

We will post further details later.

We would also like to pass on our formal condolences to the members of the AIN on the passing of Icillio Ceretelli, President in November this year.
