Did you know that about two million Americans have epilepsy, with repeated epileptic seizures? Anyone can develop epilepsy at any age, and the number of elderly people with epilepsy is climbing as the baby boom generation reaches retirement age.
Come and learn how epilepsy is diagnosed and managed at a free seminar entitled “Diagnosing Epilepsy and Treating Epileptic Seizures,” with Lankenau Medical Center Neurologist Douglas Maus, MD, PhD, on Wednesday, March 27 from Noon–1:00 pm, at Main Line Health Center in Broomall, Lawrence Park Shopping Center, 1991 Sproul Road, Broomall, PA 19008.
The seminar is part of “Wellness Wednesdays at Lawrence Park,” free monthly seminars led by Lankenau Medical Center physicians who discuss timely wellness topics, provide expert insight and offer tips that help support a healthy lifestyle. Each seminar includes a question-and-answer period.
