Description

"Obstacles in Epilepsy Diagnosis: If You Don't Ask, They Won't Tell" by Jacqueline French, M.D. The 13th Judith Hoyer Lecture in Epilepsy, presented by invited lecturer Dr. French, is sponsored by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. This series is held in memory of Mrs. Judith Hoyer, an active member of the Board of Directors of the Epilepsy Foundation and the late wife of U.S. Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD). Mrs. Hoyer spent her life both helping families to cope with epilepsy and promoting research into a cure and a better quality of life for those with the disorder. The purpose of the lecture is to raise awareness of epilepsy among researchers and the public and provide intellectual stimulation that will encourage continuing progress toward finding a cure for epilepsy. Supported in part by Upsher-Smith Laboratories, Inc. and NINDS.
