VNS Neuromodulation Therapy Webinar on Tuesday June 23rd at 6 PM
Join the BC Epilepsy Society and the I AM A VOICE for Epilepsy Awareness™ campaign on Tuesday June 23rd from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM PST for the VNS Neuromodulation Therapy Webinar to learn about vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) may be a potential treatment option for people living with epilepsy.
This webinar will focus on how VNS works to control seizures, including the surgery involved with the VNS implantation process and the clinical results and potential side effects of VNS. The presentation will be followed by a live Q&A to engage people who are more interested in what the VNS device can do for them.
