The San Francisco Neurological Society (SFNS) is committed to excellence in the neurosciences as well as the professional and intellectual development of its members. Our program is designed to improve and amplify critical thinking and analysis of the latest neuroscientific information, to help promote innovation in the basic neurosciences, and to enhance performance and increase competence in the care of persons with diseases of the nervous system. This is accomplished by providing diverse, advanced, relevant, judicious, challenging and sometimes, controversial information in the neurosciences, provided through didactic programs and scholarly debate.
