About TIRCON NBIA Workshops

In order to make NBIA diagnosis and treatment easier in the future, TIRCON conducts a number of NBIA teaching workshops. These joint education programs are designed to teach both new and experienced medical professionals about NBIA. As a result, the TIRCON NBIA workshops contribute to the harmonization of care standards in NBIA treatment.
