10th European Narcolepsy Day
May 18 – May 19
Dear colleagues, patients, guests and friends,
On behalf of the European Narcolepsy Network (EUNN), it is my pleasure to invite you to the 10th European Narcolepsy Day, which returns to Switzerland 9 years after the first event took place in Lugano in 2010.
The EU-NN is a non-profit organization whose mission is to increase public awareness about narcolepsy and related diseases and to support initiatives in research, education and management to improve the quality of life for all affected persons. Over the years the EUNN narcolepsy day has become a unique opportunity for scientists, patients, physicians and healthcare professionals to receive updates and exchange ideas and experiences.
This year’s program, which immediately follows the 16th European Narcolepsy Master Class (Bern, May 17), includes clinical and scientific sessions on the narcolepsy borderland, lectures (“year in review”) on the most recent publications in the field of narcolepsy, short presentations by young investigators on current research projects, and a poster session. Representatives of national patient organizations will host a joint workshop with clinicians on “quality of life in narcolepsy” and a second session, in which questions prepared in advance by patients, will be discussed together with physicians and scientists.
In addition to the traditional awards for the best presentation and poster, the EU-NN is honoured to present for the first time the “European Narcolepsy Award” to Professor Emmanuel Mignot (USA) and Prof. Masashi Yanagisawa (Japan) for their outstanding research contributions to the field of narcolepsy.
We very much look forward to welcoming all of you to the beautiful city of Bern in May 2019.
Prof. Claudio Bassetti
President of the European Narcolepsy Network
