2013 Consumer Conference – November 16th
On Saturday, November 16, the Epilepsy Foundation hosted its fourth annual Epilepsy Consumer Conference at the Crowne Plaza Chicago Metro from 8:00 am – 2:45 pm. This free event is for individuals with epilepsy, their families, and our community. Renowned epileptoligists and other medical professionals covered a wide variety of topics, such as medication side effects, surgical interventions, and use of medical marijuana, recreational drugs, and alcohol. The conference once again included “Ask the Doc” sessions, where participants asked their own questions to different doctors.
