The Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan is excited to offer its first ever Epilepsy Innovation Conference in Grand Rapids on June 2, 2018. As the title of the conference suggests, all presentations will have a strong focus on the latest advances in the field and exciting changes on the horizon. The conference is primarily for people with epilepsy and family members, but professionals will also find value in attending. This Saturday conference will feature expert speakers from Grand Rapids and surrounding areas, and will provide a much-needed opportunity for education and networking for the epilepsy community in West Michigan.
