Teachenor-Williamson Society Symposium
Jacques Morcos, M.D., (third from left) professor in the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Miami was the keynote speaker at the 2018 Teachenor-Williamson Society Symposium.
To further recognize the legacy of scholarly comradery of Frank Randall Teachenor, M.D., and William P. Williamson, M.D., two pioneers of neurosurgery at KU Medical Center, the Teachenor-Williamson Society Symposiums recapture the spirit of the Frank R. Teachenor Lectures hosted by the department between 1958 and 1969.
Debuting in 2012, the Teachenor-Williamson Symposiums bring together the program's faculty, residents and alumni; local and visiting neurosurgeons; and distinguished guests interested in the clinical neurosciences. The event features an evening dinner and keynote speaker followed by a half-day slate of educational talks.
The 2019 Teachenor-Williamson Symposium will be Oct. 11-12 at the InterContinental Hotel on the historic Country Club Plaza in Kansas City.
The keynote speaker will be Anil Nanda, M.D., M.P.H., professor, chair of neurosurgery at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, and senior vice president for neurosurgical services for RWJBarnabas Health. A recognized leader in neurosurgery with sub-specialty expertise in skull base, vascular and spinal neurosurgery, including Gamma Knife radiosurgery, Nanda is a prolific researcher and sought after national and international lecturer and visiting professor.
