Epilepsy Education Day - A Great Success

Epilepsy Education Day on May 27, 2017, was a tremendous success thanks to our amazing presenters: Dr. Mary Connolly, Dr. Anita Datta, Dr. Islam Hassan and Dr. Chantelle Hrazdil and the fascinating topics and information they shared.

Participants learned about advances in diagnosis and treatment, ways to monitor seizures, understanding anxiety, and the complexities surrounding cannabidiol and potential hope this treatment may offer.

The participant feedback was incredibly positive and lots of great suggestions for topics and format for the future. A few themes emerged as areas of interest for our next day: Adults, Women, Medication, Diet, Lifestyle, Mental Health, Surgery, Newly Diagnosed, and Parents.

Stay tuned for Ketogenic Diet Day in the fall. Details to come.
