  • Information on cutting-edge therapies and treatments
  • The opportunity to engage with other families and advocacy groups in the epilepsy community

What to Expect

Epilepsy Research: A Live Q&A – A moderated discussion by a panel of leading local clinicians and researchers who discuss audience questions about recent findings from epilepsy research.

You can submit your questions ahead of time using this form, and the panelists will do their best to address them.

We will also provide you with note cards during the event to write down any additional questions you may have for the panelists.

Lunch & Learn with the Experts – Further explore topics from the Q&A with panelists in a small-group setting.

After the panel discussion, CURE will provide lunch and you will be able to sit with panelists to ask questions and discuss the latest research in epilepsy, therapy, and treatments.
