Today marks International Epilepsy Day! International Epilepsy Day, a joint initiative created by the International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE) and the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE), is a global event celebrated annually on the 2nd Monday of February, to promote awareness around epilepsy.
Dr Helena Moore, Consultant Neurologist at the Bon Secours Hospital Tralee supports International Epilepsy Day as it is important to increase public awareness and knowledge of seizures. Dr Moore encourages people to think of Epilepsy Ireland in Killarney which provides local support for people with seizures and their families.
