Doha – November 12, 2022: The Division of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) at Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q) hosted a series of webinars for healthcare professionals.

With the worldwide prevalence of dementia, a common pathological consequence of neurodegenerative diseases, expected to significantly rise over the coming years, WCM-Q launched a webinar series titled ‘Protein Misfolding Diseases and Neurodegeneration: From Experimental Approach to Clinical Therapy’ to keep healthcare professionals up to date with relevant advancements in the field.
