The 2014 CSF Think Tank meeting took place on April 5, 2014 in San Francisco, CA. This year, thanks to technological advances, the meeting was attended by over 50 medical professionals from all over the world. This collaboration on a national and international scale allowed the team to begin the process towards the firstever international Chiari database. A database of this size and quality will allow for the implementation of larger, multi-center, and more statistically sound research studies. With the more advanced, accurate research that this database can provide, we will be even closer to finding viable solutions for those who continue to struggle with these disorders.

CSF FUNDED RESEARCH
Upon scientific review by experts from the CSF Scientific Education & Advisory Board, CSF was pleased to fund the following 2012-2013 grants.
Through no fault of their own, many medical professionals are only vagulely acquainted with Chiari and the methods by which it is treated. CSF wants to help change this. We have put together an educational program called Consider Chiari. The objective of this campaign is to spark awareness, putting Chiari on the radar of medical professionals. We want people to Consider Chiari.
Are you a medical professional interested in learning more about this Consider Chiari? Maybe you are interested in implementing this educational campaign at your place of work? Contact Cathy Poznik for more information andlearn more about past Consider Chiari events.
