How to obtain financial assistance for seizure detection and seizure prediction devices or service dogs (for seizures)? 

For our December issue, we have chosen to highlight a few of the epilepsy foundations that are doing amazing work; especially those that offer grants for medical alerting devices or service dogs for people living with epilepsy.

Seizure Star: Dr. Marcelo Lancman, Medical Director of the Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group
Seizure Star: Dr. Marcelo Lancman, Medical Director of the Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group

Dr. Lancman has been chosen this issue's Epilepsy Star because of all the work and dedication he has shown to epilepsy and seizure disorders for the last three decades. Dr. Lancman has been the Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group's Medical Director since 1998 where he leads an impressive group of professionals that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients living with epilepsy and their family and loved ones. Under his auspices, the Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group has also created a one-of-a-kind psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES) treatment program. It is for these reasons that he has been chosen to receive the Epilepsy Star recognition this quarter.

Epilepsy Survey results: What are your plans regarding the COVID-19 vaccine?
Epilepsy Survey results: What are your plans regarding the COVID-19 vaccine?

Merriam-Webster's 2021 word of the year is "vaccine" because such a massive number of searches were run on this word this year. Because Covid-19 vaccines continue to be such a hot topic, we did not discontinue our COVID-19 vaccine survey this quarter. We asked if our website visitors (epilepsygroup.com) were a) planning on getting the vaccine or had already received it, b) Did not plan to get one, c) had not decided yet one way or the other.  Results continue to show that almost three fourths of respondents were already vaccinated or are planning on being vaccinated.  Fifteen percent of respondents stated that they are not planning on being vaccinated.  This number remains unchanged despite public education campaigns, celebrity endorsements, vaccine mandates, etc.  It is unclear what the newest strains (i.e., Omicron) will mean for current vaccine campaigns and it is fortunate that some pharmaceuticals are also working hard to produce effective treatments for Covid-19.  Perhaps we will know more by our next issue.

VIRTUAL SUPPORT GROUPS

PSYCHOGENIC NON-EPILEPTIC SEIZURES (PNES) SUPPORT GROUP

Third Wednesday of the month from 1PM to 2PM

The group is for patients at our NEREG PNES program diagnosed with PNES who have completed treatment or who are advanced in their current treatment. Unfortunately, the group is not open to anyone who has not gone through our treatment program because the demand would be too great for our conference call. The group meets to touch base, to go over current problems that may have arisen for group members associated to PNES, for general support and comradery, and to continue to be part of the PNES community. To register or obtain more information: lmyers@epilepsygroup.com
