The Annual Carrell-Krusen Neuromuscular Symposium is a unique conference attended by more than 200 each year at the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. Its name honors Dr. Brandon Carrell who retired as physician-in-chief at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital in 1978 and Dr. Ed Krusen who organized the first Muscular Dystrophy Association clinic in Dallas. This Symposium began in 1978 under the leadership of Dr. Jay Cook as a Muscular Dystrophy Clinic Directors' meeting and is now jointly sponsored by the hospital, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Childrens' Medical Center of Dallas, and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. The Symposium has grown to be the most popular clinical meeting for neuromuscular specialists in the country. During the 2 day meeting, attendees participate in lively discussions while meeting interesting and challenging patients. Attendees are invited to contribute interesting electrodiagnostic and histopathologic cases to review with the group. The visiting professor, the recipient of the Carrell-Krusen Award, gives the keynote lecture. Currently, the Program Director is Dr. Susan T. Iannaccone and Co-Directors Dr. Jaya Trivedi and Dr. Diana Castro.
