Join us from home, as we discuss and find support for the daily challenges that epilepsy presents. This group is open to people of all ages with epilepsy, as well as their families and caregivers living in New England. Our mission is to create a safe and nurturing environment where everyone’s concerns are taken into consideration. If enough people are interested, we will add more online meetings for specific target groups. i.e. parents only, adults only, teens only etc. We will be asking for you input for future topics that you want to learn more about.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
