Events & News


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 1) a Jersey Shore bike ride, 2) Walk into the Light Epilepsy event in New York City, 3) community booths in two New Jersey locations, and 4) a very timely webinar on managing seizures in the school given by nurse practitioner, Shannon Brophy. Last but certainly not least, NEREG doctors have published a number of scientific articles in the last few months.  These publications have come out in peer-reviewed journals.  Below you can read all about the activities NEREG and their patients have been a part of during this year!
