A message from the board of directors:

The Cerebrovascular Research and Education Foundation (CREF) goals reflect our vision to impact the lives of patients around the world with diseases like brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, carotid/vertebral and intracranial stenosis and acute stroke. CREF funds the World Live Neurovascular Conference (WLNC). WLNC is the largest conference of its kind in our field. This conference is every year exposing physicians, nurses and technicians from around the world to the best practices in our field. The conference focuses on teaching by exempla and hands on experience. We have had so many reports of how the interventional teams are able to offer better medical treatments to their patients after they return home from WLNC.

Educational grants can make a huge difference for nurses, technicians, fellows and residents from around the world to attend a high level educational events such as WLNC. Our vision also includes funding research projects that can bring disruptive technologies to treat or prevent cerebrovascular disease and focused training activities in new techniques and devices.

Being a part of the Cerebrovascular Research and Education Foundation is a very gratifying and enjoyable experience. We hope you join us with your help we can make a difference on the fight against cerebrovascular disease.
