We are excited to announce a new series of webinars to kick off on 22 September 2021.

The webinar series aims to support and promote the education of young stroke physicians across Europe. The educational webinars seek to provide a balance between an interactive webinar and didactic teaching. Each webinar will run for 60 to 75 minutes and feature a pair of presenters – one senior expert who will deliver a didactic lecture and a more junior colleague who will present a case study. The session will culminate with an interactive discussion moderated by representatives of the Education and YSPR committees. All Educational Webinars will be recorded and hosted on eSTEP allowing on demand access to all ESO members.

The initial series will cover six core educational topics, each with its own dedicated webinar, with a view to becoming an ongoing program in the future based on the feedback received during these first 6 webinars.

The first webinar is planned for 22 September at 18:30 CEST and will focus on Secondary Prevention. The session which is titled Medical Management of Large Artery Disease, will feature speakers Peter Kelly and Linxin Li. The webinar will be moderated by Alastair Webb and Yvonne Zuurbie.
