Events & News


The epilepsy community and our doctors have been out walking for epilepsy, teaching through webinars, and celebrating Purple Day the first half of 2014

Epilepsy Education

In the past 3 months, our epilepsy doctors have offered eight free webinars on epilepsy and seizures, team Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group marched in two epilepsy walks and celebrated Purple Day. Webinars have covered numerous epilepsy topics including medical marijuana, the differences between brand and generic anti-seizure medications, depression and epilepsy, and more.  Some webinars were also given in Spanish and Chinese in order to reach groups of patients and families in their mother tongue providing them with current epilepsy information.  These webinars are open to anyone who registers and represent one of the efforts that the Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group is making in spreading current epilepsy information.  All of these past webinars are recorded and available to view at any time at this link:
