Events & News


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

Our epilepsy and seizures community of patients, relatives, friends and doctors has been busy! Although Covid-19 is still very much present, our staff continue to put their best efforts forward to keep life moving towards normalcy.  

We would again like to praise all our office staff and clinicians who have returned to the offices and continue to tend to patients in the hospitals. Patients and families also earn our deepest respect in how they have adapted to online medicine and are very conscientious about safety protocols when coming in to see their health professionals.  

Team Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group was also a part of the 2020 virtual Glow Walk and Run benefiting the Epilepsy Services of New Jersey.  It was held on October 24.  Despite COVID-19, the event was held, albeit virtually (for the first time ever) and a costume competition was also part of the fun.

Another item to highlight, November, National Epilepsy Month was also celebrated for the most part online, but that did not squash the purple if you check out our Epilepsy Life Links Facebook page and many of the other foundations and societies around the USA.

Our doctors have continued to forge ahead during the last few months and presented their posters at the 2020 Annual American Epilepsy Society meeting (originally planned to be held in Seattle, Washington but then moved to an online platform).  Congratulations to them all for managing to stay focused on the science of epilepsy and seizures during these difficult times. Below you can read about the scientific posters that were presented this month in the virtual American Epilepsy Society meeting.  

Posters presented at AES:
