Epilepsy, what’s new?

April 1, 2013

What do you think of when you hear the word “epilepsy”? About one in 100 Canadians has epilepsy, yet this condition remains enigmatic. Much is now known about the causes of epilepsy and a diverse array of therapies is available. Much remains to be discovered.

If you want to know more about epilepsy, what therapies are available and how the lives of people with epilepsy can be improved, come listen to some of the leading epilepsy experts in Canada, including two neurologists, a neurosurgeon and a neuropsychologist.

Hello. Can you tell me if this event will be recorded? I am in Calgary and cannot attend, but would very much like to hear what they say.

Hello, hope the conference was good. Would very much have liked to register and attend but only received the link this Morning Thursday . Is there any way that you can post on your site an archive in a PowerPoint or PDF format of the guest speakers conferences?

I work in a school as a special needs technician and would really like to include this information in my bank of resource materials.

Thank you!
