Free workshop on childhood epilepsy

childrens-medical-services-logoHelp is coming for children with epilepsy.

Children’s Medical Services, St. Joseph’s/Candler, the Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia, and UCB biopharma, are teaming up to provide a free educational workshop on epilepsy. The workshop will be 6:30 to 8:30 PM. Wed. July 15 @ Candler Hospital’s Marsh Auditorium (5353 Reynolds Street in Savannah). Refreshments will be provided.

The session will focus on various types of epileptic seizures, the appropriate first-aid for seizures, and the different treatment options available. The workshop will also address the impact that seizures can have on a child’s academic abilities and quality of life.

The goal is to help educate family members and friends of children with epilepsy along with daycare providers, school nurses, pediatric medical practice staff members, social workers, and teachers.

The workshop is free. Registration is encouraged. Call Children’s Medical Services at 1-866-647-0010.
