Overview

Conference Reporter delivers health care providers with insights from key thought leaders on exciting news presented at major medical conferences, in a concise and timely format. This issue of Conference Reporter will feature coverage of selected topics in Epilepsy presented at this year’s AES annual meeting.

“Even when seizures are infrequent, people with treatment-resistant epilepsy face risks and barriers that can undermine their hopes of having an independent lifestyle. Thus, the goal of complete seizure control remains an important one, as evidenced by all of the clinical research being conducted in this area.”
