Epilepsy Education Conference for Families

We are happy to announce a wonderful opportunity provided by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, please join EFGA and other community partners for a day of learning! The goal of this educational conference is to provide information and support for children and families dealing with epilepsy.

During this event, you will hear speakers covering a variety of epilepsy-related topics, including the following:
· Current trends in epilepsy
· Thinking, mood, behavior and school performance
· Medications and alternative treatments
· Transition: Identifying resources and benefits
· Behavioral therapy

In addition to presentations from medical professionals, we will offer three breaks throughout the day, where families can network and share resources. Our day will end with a question-and-answer panel, where you will have the chance to ask our specialists about the information and topics that were presented and learn about services and resources that are available.
