About the Epilepsy Education Conferences

In spring and fall, the EFEPA holds free annual conferences in the Berks, Lancaster, Lehigh Valley, Philadelphia and Wilkes-Barre regions. We invite those living with epilepsy, family members, caregivers, medical and healthcare professionals, and school personnel to explore important topics in epilepsy while developing a network of support and increasing public awareness, education and understanding.

Our educational conferences provide information on a wide array of relevant topics such as the latest in epilepsy treatments and updates; psychological, emotional, and social concerns; clinical trials, employment, and school issues as well as other challenges that those with epilepsy/seizure disorder share.

These conferences are free and open to the public. Travel reimbursement to programs available upon request. Email for more information!

Special Thank You to our Conference Series Sponsors:
