As people age, the risk of epilepsy and seizures rise. In fact, the onset of epilepsy is common in seniors, with epilepsy being the fourth most common neurological disease in the senior population after migraine, dementia, and stroke. This webinar will cover information on epilepsy and seizures in seniors.
