ASA Newsletter
Issue: September 2020


Dear colleagues,
 
I hope this newsletter finds you well during these difficult times. This is my first newsletter as President of the ASA (with more thoughts about this on our website,  www.strokeacademy.com.au). 
If you are feeling in any way disconnected from your stroke community in 2020, please know that the ASA is doing whatever we can to deliver the highest quality stroke education to you in the most collegial but COVID-safe way possible.
Our flagship event, the annual Seminar, will be running at The W Brisbane. Please see the conference website for more details  www.2020asa.com. We will welcome anyone that is allowed into Queensland at the time to a face-to-face meeting for clinical updates, social and professional networking, and pointed but polite debate. All COVID-related guidelines will be adhered to. For those who cannot or prefer not to attend in person, we will be offering a virtual attendance option.
We have also recently run a webinar in conjunction with Boehringer Ingelheim (with thanks) and plan to arrange more. These events give us an opportunity to drill down and focus on one topic for an evening. The next will be October 6 th, 6pm Brisbane/6:30pm SA/7pm Melbourne and will features Professors Stephen Davis and Joseph Selvanayagam, updating stroke secondary prevention and in particular cardiac structural intervention. Please do join us!
We’re looking forward to presenting more educational opportunities and please feel free to email us with suggestions or questions.

A/Prof Andrew Wong
President
