The new support group will provide an open discussion, friendship and connection, as well as epilepsy education.
Patients dealing with epilepsy, and their caregivers, often need additional support to navigate life with the condition.
Norton Neuroscience Institute and the Epilepsy Foundation of Kentuckiana are partnering to offer an epilepsy support group for adults. The group will provide an open discussion, friendship and connection, as well as epilepsy education.
“Our goal for this support group is to provide a place where patients with seizures and epilepsy can discuss the social, financial, medical and spiritual effects of the condition,” said William F. Dotson, M.D., epilepsy director and neurologist with Norton Neurology Services. “The support group will be open and relaxed, and we hope patients and caregivers will find friendship and knowledge.”
