August Med School Café - Cerebral Aneurysms: Prevention and Management

The August Med School Café lecture will feature Dr. Steve Cordina, assistant professor of neurology and medical director of the University of South Alabama Stroke Center.

His lecture, titled “Cerebral Aneurysms: Prevention and Management,” will take place Aug. 28, 2014, in the John Counts Room in the USA Mitchell Center on USA’s main campus. Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m., and the presentation begins at noon.

During the talk, Dr. Cordina will discuss the risk factors of developing cerebral aneurysms and what can be done to repair them once they have been discovered.

Dr. Cordina earned his medical degree from the University of Malta in Msida, Malta. He completed his residency training in neurology at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey Department of Neurology and Neurosciences in Newark, N.J.
