Johns Hopkins Medicine is hosting an online patient educational seminar for people who are diagnosed with or have a loved one/friend with Chiari malformation. This webinar will be presented by neurosurgeon George Jallo, M.D. He will share information on how this condition often imitates other neurological diseases, can be diagnosed without obvious symptoms, and how surgical treatment can improve quality of life.
