American Epilepsy Annual Meeting 2010

AESThe American Epilepsy Society’s Annual Meeting is the premiere meeting for epilepsy and other seizure disorders. The Annual Meeting is an international forum for the exchange of current findings in epilepsy research. Information is communicated and disseminated through symposia, lectures, scientific exhibitions, poster and platform presentations.

The Annual Meeting attracts attendees from all over the world and provides educational and networking opportunities for the academic and practicing neurologist, epileptologist, neurophysiologist, neuroscientist, neurosurgeon, internist, pediatrician, pharmacist, nurse, social worker and other professionals.

ICE was well represented at the AES meeting by ICE volunteers Tammy Robison, Karina Fischer and Michelle Welborn.  The booth in the exhibit hall was well attended.  ICE was asked to provide slides along with other advocacy groups shown before the main lecture.  Dravet syndrome was the only syndrome mentioned by the NIH/NINDS speaker during the morning lecture – our work is paying off.
