Epilepsy WA Conference

We are proud to deliver this very special educational conference day “A Celebration of WA’s Epilepsy Warriors And The Excellence Of Our Clinicians And Researchers. Proudly Western Australian.” for people living with epilepsy and their loved ones.

This years’ event features the most impressive line-up of speakers ever, and will be MC’d, once again, by Karl Langdon, a high profile AFL player, who is one of Western Australia’s leading Sports Commentators and Radio Personalities.

This special day will also include priceless insights and story sharing from West Australian Epilepsy Warriors and their loved-ones to ensure that their unique insights into navigating life with an epilepsy diagnosis are shared.

Five highly regarded Neurologists/Epileptologists and one renowned Neuropsychiatrist will be speaking.
