Our epilepsy community of patients, family, friends and doctors has been busy

Patients, family members, friends, doctors, office managers, secretaries and nurses have all been extra-busy these last few months raising epilepsy awareness through a five-borough bike ride in New York City and through a town hall meeting in Hackensack, NJ.  Read all about the activities NEREG and their patients have been a part of this year and check out the photo gallery in the links provided!

5-Borough Bike Tour
Dr. Lorna Myers and Slavica Mickovic rode through New York City as part of team Epilepsy Free (Dr. Lancman had planned to ride but had to desist when he came down with hip pain-he is hoping to ride in September in the Jersey shore bike tour).  The Epilepsy Free team raised an awesome $2520 from donors from all over!  We are especially happy about this since this amount of funds allows us to grant 2 additional college scholarships and one summer camp scholarship.
