EPIC Long Island Chief Executive Officer Tom Hopkins and Weill Cornell Medical Center Neuropsychology professor Kenneth Perrine, M.D., discussed work and services of the nonprofit organization, the connection between epilepsy and concussions, what is known about the risk of developing epilepsy from participating in sports, and efforts to increase public awareness of epilepsy.
EPIC Long Island, Inc. proudly participated in a “big splash” ceremony on Thursday, March 19 to celebrate the dedication of the colorful murals that now adorn the entrance and waiting room of the South Shore Child Guidance Center in Freeport, Long Island.
In early December, Joseph Sirven M.D., Editor-in-chief of www.epilepsy.com, interviewed Alan B. Ettinger M.D., MBA. Dr. Ettinger is Professor of Clinical Neurology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and holds many positions in New York hospitals specializing in epilepsy and neuropsychiatry, including Huntington Hospital, Winthrop University Hospital and Long Island at St. Charles Hospital. He discussed results from a study (soon coming out in the journal Epilepsia) of 1400 adults with epilepsy from across the United States to understand attention disorders in adults with seizures and epilepsy.
It was a night of mingling, dancing and celebrating, as more than 150 attendees raised a glass to EPIC Long Island at the agency’s 30th Anniversary Diamonds & Pearls Dinner Gala.
