Official statement as of 9 March 2022:
The Peripheral Nerve Society (PNS) condemns the Russian military invasion of Ukraine and the violation of international law. Our thoughts are with the Ukrainian people, but also with Russian clinicians, scientists and citizens who have the courage to voice their opposition to this unjustified war. As a medical & scientific society, we believe that international scientific exchange is fundamental and cannot be interrupted, especially not in such difficult times of conflict. We urge the Russian government to stop the attack on the sovereign and democratic state of Ukraine and its population immediately.
The Nerve Connect, the quarterly newsletter of the Peripheral Nerve Society, features the most current activities and initiatives of the Society, spotlights our members and their amazing work, and highlights exciting news in the field of peripheral.
