CSN Scientific Director Antoine Hakim has been selected by the program committee of the Canadian Stroke Congress as the 2013 Hnatyshyn Lecturer. The lecture, delivered annually, is the Canadian Stroke Network’s preeminent annual lecture. It was established in 2002 in honour of former Governor General and founding CSN board member Ray Hnatyshyn.
Dr. Hakim said he is honoured to have been selected. His lecture, to be delivered in Montreal at the October congress, will be a retrospective on the impact of the Canadian Stroke Network and how it has achieved change in stroke research and care in Canada.
Dr. Michael Tymianski of the University of Toronto presented the 2012 Hnatyshyn Lecture at the Canadian Stroke Congress in Calgary. Dr. Tymianski also won the network’s Paul Morley Mentorship Award for 2012 for his work in encouraging the next generation of stroke researchers.
