September is Neuroanesthesiology Month and UI Neuroanesthesiology is in celebration mode! Our division is hosting several Zoom Conferences with speakers from across the country highlighting many facets of the subspecialty throughout the month.

This year, the major international meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care – SNACC went from a live meeting in Quebec, Canada to a virtual format. UI Neuroanesthesiology was well-represented in every aspect. The SNACC Virtual 48 th Annual Meeting cumulated with a celebration of two of our faculty: Peggy Wheeler, MDNew Member of the Board and Chanannait Paisansathan, MD, MHANew SNACCC President.


The first act of Dr. Paisansathan’s presidency was to take on the Ice Bucket Challenge to support the William L. Young Neuroscience Research Award. Her efforts along with outgoing SNACC President, Deepak Sharma, MD, MBSS, DM, generated over $6,000! Here are some pictures.
