CURE Epilepsy CARES (Conversations About Research in Epilepsy & Seizures) is a free, educational event for patients, families, medical professionals, researchers, and all those touched by or interested in learning more about epilepsy. Join us as clinicians answer your questions about cutting-edge research and epilepsy treatments.

This CARES event featured epilepsy experts from around the San Francisco area as this event is typically regional, however, this event was broadcasted nationally so that anyone could participate.
