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 [email protected] for more information!
