BridgetteIowa Seizure Smart Conference

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2021

7:30 AM CDT – 11 AM CDT

The Epilepsy Foundation invites you to join us for our Iowa Seizure Smart Conference which will be held on Saturday, October 30, 2021 from 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM CT on Zoom!
We planned our Iowa Seizure Smart Conference as an in-person/hybrid conference at the Unity Point Education and Research Center in Des Moines, but due to COVID and the health and safety with our staff and those we serve, we have converted this event to a virtual conference on zoom.

This conference provides epilepsy education with medical experts and is geared toward families, individuals and caregivers impacted by epilepsy, but providers and professionals will also be in attendance.

There is NO COST to register or participate in the conference and we welcome all individuals who are interested in learning more about seizures and epilepsy to register and participate!
