June 14th-16th, 2018 (Alexandria, VA): The PAME Conference

June 14th-16th (Alexandria, VA):

The PAME Conference provides a unique forum for clinicians, researchers, public health officials, patients, and families affected by epilepsy to come together in an effort to better understand, address, and ultimately reduce mortality in epilepsy. While in DC, Executive Director, Vanessa Vogel-Falrley, participated in Capital Hill Visits to inform governmental representatives of the importance of state and federal support of research and medical care related to epilepsy.

The overarching goal of the conference is to plan, conduct, and disseminate content from a multidisciplinary meeting focused on knowledge-sharing and translation that will identify:

  • Trends in incidence of epilepsy-related mortality and prevention
  • Gaps in the knowledge base about mortality in epilepsy
  • Gaps in stakeholder understanding of mortality in epilepsy
  • Opportunities to advance mortality research, prevention, and awareness
