Hannover, Germany

12th European Conference on Tourette Syndrome & Tic Disorders

Welcome to the Hannover 2019 Meeting page!

For all those who attended, we hope you enjoyed the meeting. And for those who couldn’t join, we hope to see you next year in Lausanne…😉

Based on the feedback we received, the new programme format has been appreciated and we will thus try to maintain that momentum for upcoming meetings.

Of course, do not hesitate to contact us for any suggestions, anytime, and we will do our best to incorporate them: ideas@essts.org

Survey:
Is it time to rename Tourette's?
Controversy: Pro/con discussion with the audience followed by a poll.

This year, we have introduced live polling for the ePoster and oral presentation awards, but also for our first (though certainly not last!) controversy, titled:

“Is it time to rename Tourette syndrome?”

See the final results on the following chart.

In Jeremy Stern’s immortal and spontaneous comment it was “Brexit all over again”…😉

Of note, the discussion with the audience was lively and could easily have gone on for much longer. To be continued in Lausanne on this and other topics!
