6th Judith Hoyer Lecture in Epilepsy - Epilepsy in Children: Listening to Mothers
Program Length: 58 min
The 6th Judith Hoyer Lecture in Epilepsy, presented by invited lecturer Gregory L. Holmes, M.D., is sponsored by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Dr. Holmes’s presentation is the sixth 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 Rep. 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.
Gregory L. Holmes, M.D., Professor of Neurology and Pediatrics, Chairman of the Department of Neurology at Dartmouth Medical School
