2011 AES Annual Meeting - 201.01 - 9th Judith Hoyer Lecture in Epilepsy
Program Length: 135 minutes
Dr. Steven Schachter, is sponsored by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Dr. Schachter’s presentation is the ninth in a series of lectures highlighting the promise of epilepsy research. This series is held in memory of Mrs. Judith Hoyer, an active member of the Board of Directors of the Epilepsy Foundation and the late wife of Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD). Mrs. Hoyer spent her life both helping families to cope with epilepsy and promoting research into a cure and a better quality of life for those with the disorder. The purpose of the lecture is to raise awareness of epilepsy among researchers and the public and provide intellectual stimulation that will encourage continuing progress toward finding a cure for epilepsy.
