This free Patient and Family Support and Education Series is part of the COPE Program at the Weill Cornell Epilepsy Center. The Seminar Series is designed for the individual living with epilepsy, and their care partner. There are medical, social, behavioral, and emotional concerns for individuals living with epilepsy, at any age. As epilepsy research continues, there is an effort to form a more complete understanding of the source of seizures that would facilitate improved treatment outcomes and ultimately offer a cure.
The seminars are an opportunity for the specialists treating individuals with seizures to provide the participants with the latest information in the field of epilepsy, and to address the special concerns of those living with epilepsy in an open forum. In addition to a brief talk by the guest speaker, the seminars will offer an opportunity to share and participate in discussion within a group setting. Our philosophy is that the medical team, the patient and their care partner are working together to treat the condition. The seminars are designed to support the individual living with the condition and those closest to them. The series is facilitated by a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
