If your child has had epilepsy surgery, or may need it, this conference is for you. Learn from some of the world’s top neuro-professionals, educators, researchers, and rehabilitation clinicians who will present rich sessions on issues related to pediatric epilepsy surgery.

Exhibitors will share their resources for our community and professional childcare is available so that kids have safe and supervised fun.
