Rare Epilepsies Conference

May 7 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

Free
 

The 2nd Annual Upper Midwest Rare Epilepsies Conference will take place virtually on Saturday, May 7, 9, and 11, and will feature presentations from leading medical professionals, family caregivers, and epilepsy researchers as they present on topics including new therapies, research, wellness, and planning for the future.

With 3.4 million people diagnosed with epilepsy in the US and 1 in 26 people developing the disorder in their lifetime, an increasing number of people are being diagnosed with a form of rare epilepsy. Though advances in research and genetics are resulting in an increased understanding of many of these syndromes, there is still much to learn. Rare epilepsies such as the Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, Doose Syndrome, and others can greatly alter a person’s life, and the more we can understand them, the better equipped we are to fight the challenges they can present.
