2021 Virtual NES/Functional Seizure Conference
Dates: October 9th and 10th
Times: 9:00am to 4:00pm Eastern Daylight Time (EDT, UTC-4) on Zoom.
This conference builds on the annual PNES Conference formerly hosted by Dr. Lorna Myers of Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group. The event is open to anyone with an interest in learning more about non-epileptic (NES)/functional seizures (FS). FS researchers, clinicians, patients and caregivers will present on a variety of topics from various perspectives and interests. Together, we are committed to improving the lives of those living with seizures.
We at FND Hope strive to create learning and awareness opportunities in an effort to achieve our mission to promote awareness, support affected individuals, and advance research for the prevention, treatment and recovery of FND. Together we hope to empower patients to better health.
