Report of My Attendance at the WCN2023

By Prisca-Rolande Bassolé, MD

I am a young African neurologist and researcher working in Dakar, Senegal.

I am grateful to the World Federation of Neurology for granting me a traveling fellowship to attend the XXVI World Congress of Neurology 2023, in Montreal.

I had the opportunity to refresh my knowledge and share work of my Neurosciences Department on epilepsy (e-Poster 402) and sleep disorders (e-Poster 400) with colleagues from other countries.

I also had the privilege of following in the footsteps of the eminent Prof. Wilder Penfield, a pioneer in the “functional localization” of brain areas, during a historic discovery at the McGill Neuro Hospital of Montreal.

It was a rewarding experience and a great place for networking.

Thank you to the WFN for promoting continuing education by helping junior neurologists attend these neuroscientific events. •
