Dear WSO Colleagues

Re ESO Conference Glasgow 17-19 April 2015

As you know, the European Stroke Organization is the peak body for stroke in Europe and one of the most important member societies of the WSO. ESO is a democratically constituted organization, is the regional stroke society for Europe and has driven many improvements in stroke education, advocacy and outcomes.

The President and Board of ESO have recently announced that the first ESO Conference will be held in Glasgow from 17-19 April, 2015. They have confirmed that the new conference will be democratically organized and financially transparent. Any modest financial surplus would be used for ESO’s proven educational, political and scientific activities. These include the development of European guidelines, Summer School, Winter School, Stroke Masters, Stroke Science Workshop and interdepartmental visits.

I wish to inform you that the Board of the WSO is fully supportive and endorses the ESO Conference.

The WSO “spring” board meeting will be held at the ESO conference in Glasgow in 2015 and our Board will strongly support this new annual conference.

Kind regards
Yours sincerely

Professor Stephen Davis
President, World Stroke Organization
