The Epilepsy Foundation in partnership with the Epilepsy Center at George Washington University are proud to host Epilepsy Grand Rounds, a monthly series of lectures covering a wide variety of epilepsy-related topics. The topics discussed will be presented by renowned speakers, and the goal of the series is to provide education for the attendees to improve their knowledge, competence, and clinical performance.
"Thanks to our partnership with Epilepsy.com, this series will now be visible to hundreds of thousands of physicians, health care providers, and lay persons from all over the world," said Mohamad Koubeissi, MD, director of the GW Epilepsy Center and associate professor of neurology at the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences. "With this exposure, we will have greater opportunity to educate and improve knowledge, competence, and clinical performance of larger numbers of attendees."
