Please join us for a Facebook Live to learn more about "Controlling Seizures Through Neuromodulation." In about 30-40% of people with epilepsy, medications do not control their seizures. Other treatment options used to help control seizures include surgerydietary therapy, and neuromodulation.

Neuromodulation involves using a device to send small electric currents to the nervous system. These devices vary in how they are placed in the body and the way they work. 

Join us for a Facebook Live on June 9, 2021, at 7:30 p.m. ET to learn about neuromodulation as a treatment for drug resistant epilepsy. Hear from clinicians who have expertise in utilizing neuromodulation in children and adults living with difficult to treat seizures.
