Events & News


Epilepsy on the Move: Stay tuned for upcoming epilepsy and seizure disorder events and news in the last quarter of 2021!

Stay tuned: There are plenty of upcoming activities that you may want to jot down and keep in mind over the next few months. These include the launch of  Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group (NEREG) and Mid-Atlantic Epilepsy and Sleep Center's (MAESC's) Wellness Program with online chess lessons for our patients as well as the American Epilepsy Society (AES) Annual Meeting that will take place in Nashville, TN in December.

a) August 9, 16, 23 and 30, 2022: Before the lockdown, NEREG prided itself in offering a wide variety of wellness initiatives for adult and child patients. At NEREG, our philosophy has long been that health is not only achieved through traditional medical treatment (of which we do offer state-of-the-art level therapies) but also through psychological and whole-body wellness and as a community. 

For this reason, our team of doctors and health staff have regularly participated in community educational programs, local and national walks, runs and rides, and also offered a variety of community activities for our patients and their families including, to name but a few, an excursion to a farm for peach picking, a knitting club, paint-your-pumpkin purple day, computer 101 lessons, an epilepsy book club, physical exercises lessons, learn to paint, epilepsy and psychogenic non-epileptic seizures support groups, and so much more. 

We are hopeful that life is returning to normal and because of this, NEREG and MAESC have decided to relaunch their Wellness Program starting with:

Introductory Chess lessons for persons with epilepsy and seizures being taught by Kyle and Kaleb Lancman.  Kyle Lancman has been ranked among the top 100 US players for his age since he was in elementary school and has a USCF rating of 2100+.  Kaleb Lancman, started playing a few years after his twin Kyle, and is now USCF rated at 1800+. Both have completed nationally and internationally for years and will be playing for Team USA at the Maccabi Games in Israel in July 2022. They are happy to be sharing their knowledge with their students in this Introductory class because there is nothing they love more than to talk and teach chess! 


b) December 2, 2022: The American Epilepsy Society (AES) Annual Meeting will take place the first week of December in Nashville, TN.  Our staff will travel to this meeting to present our research, to learn from others, and to network with clinicians and researchers from across the globe.
