EWSEND EPILEPSY® announces that several EPILEPSY WORKSHOP+SOCIAL EVENTS will be offered throughout our region in 2016. In partnership with Regional Centers and Epilepsy Centers, region wide, we are organizing more than eight Workshop+Social Events in the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Ventura and Riverside. Each Workshop+Social Event welcomes parents of children with epilepsy and adults with epilepsy and their loved ones. Community agency staff, school personnel, and healthcare professionals are also welcome to attend.

We want every family affected by epilepsy who attends to leave feeling more informed and connected with others in their quest for seizure freedom and to be empowered in the fight to End Epilepsy.

Each Workshop+Social will offer a chance to meet and learn from the experts about advances in diagnosis and treatments, diet therapies, new devices, wellness and safety. There will be time to meet and even have fun with families who understand about living with epilepsy, find resources and learn how to be a better advocate and more active in the fight to END EPILEPSY®.
