About Summit’s LIVE CME Webinar Program:

A  poll conducted by the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) found “…only 28% of board-certified neurologists feel completely prepared to discuss this important issue with their patients…”. 

Summit’s goal is to close the informational gap between evidence-based science and medical professionals including patients as well. Our LIVE CME Webinar Program provides current, innovative, and evidence-based information. We provide a learning experience that delivers information designed to help medical professionals and their patients separate FACT from FICTION. 

We believe through knowledge better choices can be made when navigating and managing healthcare choices. 

Our LIVE CME Webinar program unites medical and scientific professionals with patients in a learning and informational experience. Our presenters are globally recognized experts. Past presenters include Peter Marks, MD, PhD; Claire Henchcliffe, MD, DPhil; Alberto Espay, MD, MSc; Paul Knoepfler, PhD; and many more. Jeanne Loring, PhD deftly moderated each CME webinar.

 
We are currently working on our 2022 featured guest speaker line-up and thus far we have commitments from Leigh Turner, PhD; Alberto Espay, MD, MSc; and Roger Barker, PhD.
