I have had the honor of working in amazing families to learn about their epilepsy journeys and to develop informative on-demand webinars to address frequently asked questions.
November is Epilepsy Awareness Month, which provides a spotlight for a journey that we work on every single day of every year.
#LetsTalkAboutEpilepsySurgery is a terrific initiative started by Monika Jones JD at the Brain Recovery Project. I was honored to take part and discuss different types of epilepsy surgery for families approaching and considering these options for the first time. This is a great resource with a repository of a series of webinars with surgeons, epileptologists, providers, and advocates for pediatric epilepsy.
Neurostimulation is also a surgical option that is offering hope to those who may not have been considered surgical candidates before. My brilliant epilepsy colleague Dr. Joyce Wu and I joined Shae's mom along with Gabrielle Conecker and JayEtta Hecker of DEE-P Connections for a deep dive discussion in this webinar about Stimulators: Could a VNS, DBS, or RNS help?
