Join us for an educational webinar, “What’s New? Novel Approaches in Epilepsy Therapy.” The goal of epilepsy therapy is for people to work towards seizure freedom and no side effects. For 30 to 40% of people who do not respond to medication, new diagnostic and treatment approaches bring the possibility of improved seizure control. If your seizures are not controlled, it's important to seek care at an epilepsy center to learn about the most up-to-date treatments. Advances in science and medicine continue to help us better understand the causes and treatment of epilepsy.
