Basic and Advanced Neurovascular ANAtomy Zoom  — BANANAZ — is an online interactive meeting dedicated to neurovascular education.  We are not a passive experience webinar.  You can speak up, chat, and learn. 

The format is a combination of lecture / presentation given by BANANAZ core or guest faculty, followed by discussion and embo club format case presentations.  Anyone can submit cases for embo club — please email if you want to present. Cases should be 10-15 minutes long, to allow for discussion, which is really what this is about.
