UAMS To Present Free Seminar on Epilepsy 2018-01-05T08:58:56+00:00

OCT. 11, 2001 | Two neurologists will discuss new treatments for epilepsy in a free seminar Sat., Nov. 10, at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Medical Center.

Epilepsy, sometimes called a seizure disorder, is a chronic medical condition. Temporary changes in the electrical function of the brain cause seizures which can affect awareness, movement, or sensation. Epilepsy can cause anguish for persons with the condition, but many persons with epilepsy live normal, seizure-free lives.

Naim Haddad, M.D., and Bashir Shihabudden, M.D., assistant professors in the Department of Neurology in the UAMS College of Medicine, will speak.

They will explain epilepsy, including diagnosis, treatment options, new medications, side effects of medications, and how to maintain or improve one’s quality of life. There will be a 20-min. break during the morning and the last 30 minutes will be devoted to questions from the audience.

The seminar will be 9 – 11:30 a.m. in Education Building III, Room G-219, on the UAMS campus. (See the campus map.) Call 501-526-6200 or send an e-mail to
seminars@uams.edu to reserve seats.
