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) Our annual epilepsy and seizure disorders conference held in Morristown Hospital,
2) The Jersey City Glow Walk and Run to support the Epilepsy Foundation of New Jersey, and
3) November Epilepsy Awareness Month in our offices in Manhattan, Morristown and Hackensack. 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.  Our doctors were also busy presenting their research at the American Epilepsy Society in Decmber, 2017!  Below you can read all about the activities NEREG and their patients have been a part of during this year!
