NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Haymarket Media is excited to announce the launch of NeurologyAdvisor.com, a new digital resource for healthcare professionals who treat neurological disorders.

Key features include: daily neurology news, drug monographs, full-length clinical features, unique case studies, clinical charts, continuing medical education (CME) courses, and coverage from major neurology conferences.
"Our goal is to provide clinicians—neurologists, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants, who treat patients affected by neurological disorders—with the latest relevant clinical information and treatment strategies to ensure exceptional patient care," said Jim Burke, RPh, SVP, Digital Products at Haymarket Media.
Members of Neurology Advisor's editorial board, who provide guidance and who will be regular contributors, include:
