On Thursday 26th May, 3pm UK time (11am EDT), we’ll host an online event discussing how technology can help support those living with epilepsy .
During this period of enforced distancing due to COVID-19, it’s further highlighted the importance of technology for those living with medical conditions such as epilepsy and the benefits, and current limitations, of technologies for managing conditions remotely. We’re bringing together a panel of researchers and community advocates to discuss how technology can better support people at home, and we are inviting anyone interested in this topic, and especially those living with epilepsy, to join in the discussion.
Register for our free event in advance at bit.ly/3dquF4A where you’ll be able to supply questions to be discussed by the panel and wider group.
