The 2014 Emory Epilepsy Symposium is just around the corner. We will be kicking off National Epilepsy Awareness Month on November 1 with a five hour series of workshops and speakers on a variety of epilepsy-related topics. This year's program will be moving to the Evergreen Conference Center at Stone Mountain Park, so you can learn and share w/others with epilepsy in the morning and enjoy a fun day in the park afterwards. Information and registration is available online at www.epilepsyga.org

Does anyone know of any support groups in the Northeast Georgia area?

I live in Covington, Georgia and I have epilepsy. I have no support. It is amazing to me how people react when you tell them you have seizures. They act like it is a contagious disease they might catch by touching you. It is very isolating...

I live in Iowa but have someone who lives in Danielsville,Georgia that wants to be more active in any Epilepsy organization there and I am trying to help her can anyone give me any information as to where she can go to do this. I am a Therapist with the Epilepsy foundation in my state and it is important for anyone with Epilepsy to have people to talk to not only on line but face to face so your help would be deeply appreciated. My email address is raiderette68@gmail.com for anyone who can help me help her. I also have Epilepsy so I understand what people go through that is why I am trying to help her.

To some surgery may help but I don't believe in it because people that have brain surgery their seizures are worse then before,

Brain surgery is still light years away like 30-40 yrs.

I now live in Athens, ga, and I would love to explain to anyone,  about to go through the epilepsy surgery,  why I think the  epilepsy surgery was such a great surgery for me.
