Managing Epilepsy for Women Webinar

Join us for a free webinar on women and epilepsy on Saturday, September 25th at 9:00 AM with Dr. Nancy Hammond. Learn about the special challenges women face when managing epilepsy throughout their lives. Topics covered will include puberty, contraception, and pregnancy.


Dr. Hammond is a board certified epileptologist at the University of Kansas Medical Center who specializes in treating women with epilepsy.


The webinar will feature Q&A, and we encourage attendees to submit questions in advance using the space on the registration form.


Stay tuned for future women and epilepsy webinars with topics ranging from transition to care, wellness and mindfulness, and building positive relationships.
