Neurocritical Care Society continues to work on promoting education with our global partners. Dr. Katja Wartenberg directed our second ENLS course in Dubai. The course was part of the 14th International Pan Arab Critical Care Medicine Society Meeting. During the meeting, neurocritical care was well represented. Faculty included: Gene Sung, Kiwon Lee, Gretchen Brophy, Michel Torbey, Susan Yeager, Katja Wartenberg and Yasser Abulhassen. The meeting was a great success thanks to all the efforts and support of the Emirates Intensive Care Society and the leadership of Dr. Hussain Al Rahma.

In May, NCS had its second South America meeting held in Rio de Janeiro. Dr. Gisele Silva, chair of the meeting, did an excellent job putting together a collaborative group of national and international faculty to discuss the latest in neurocritical care. The meeting was very multidisciplinary with both pharmacy and nursing involvement. Faculty representing NCS included: Grechen Brophy, Jose Suarez, Mary Kay Bader and Wade Smith.
