Facial Nerve Symposium

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 3 years since the last International Facial Nerve Symposium. This is the principal conference for a facial therapist and the rehabilitation component is growing with every meeting. I’m looking forward to going to Los Angeles next summer to meet with all the experts in the field and finding out what colleagues are doing in other parts of the world.
