Rare Epilepsies Conference



May 7-8, 2021


With 3.4 million people diagnosed with epilepsy in the US and 1 in 26 people developing the disorder in their lifetime, an increasing number of people are being diagnosed with a form of rare epilepsy. Though advances in research and genetics are resulting in an increased understanding of many of these syndromes, there is still much to learn. Rare epilepsies such as Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, Doose Syndrome, Dravet Syndrome, and others can greatly alter a person’s life, and the more we can understand them, the better equipped we are to fight the challenges they can present.

The Epilepsy Foundations of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Greater Chicago hosted a free and virtual Upper Midwest Rare Epilepsies Conference on May 7-8, 2021. The conference featured leading specialists and those living with a rare epilepsy discussing topics including research, therapies, day-to-day management, and planning for the future.
