Epilepsy conference to focus on new anti-seizure medications

LOS ANGELES (Oct. 30, 2000) - The latest information on medications and treatments for living with Epilepsy is at the heart of the conference, "Knowing the Signs and Solutions for Seizures," to be held on Saturday, Nov. 4, in the Thalians Mental Health Center Auditorium on the campus of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, 8730 Alden Drive, in West Los Angeles.
