The Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group will have a booth staffed by two of our staff members who will be handing out information on epilepsy to the public as well as fun giveaways.  Why do we do this: because it is so important to increase awareness about epilepsy in the general public. Epilepsy and seizure disorders continue to be misunderstood by many and those with epilepsy still suffer the effects of stigma. It is time to bring epilepsy out of the shadows.
