Join us on Saturday November 19, 2022 for a FREE virtual epilepsy conference that brings experts from across the state right to your screen. The information presented is geared toward people living with epilepsy, their family members, and providers.
The conference will open with remarks from our Board Chair, Jeannine Garab and Kerri Neifeld, the Commissioner of the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD).
In addition to medical experts, we are excited to feature Marc Palmieri, a father of a child with epilepsy and author of She Danced with Lightning: My Daughter's Struggle with Epilepsy and Her Boundless Will to Live.
The conference will conclude with a tribute to Janice Gay (bio), founder of the Epilepsy Coalition of New York State, Inc. and tireless epilepsy advocate.
