President’s Message

Join us in Tampa!

Welcome to the Southern Epilepsy and EEG Society! The Southern Epilepsy and EEG Society has a long tradition of providing a smaller, intimate forum for learning and exchanging new information and ideas about epilepsy. This year we will cover several cutting edge topics including epilepsy surgery, high-density EEG, epilepsy genetics, advances in women’s epilepsy and biomarkers of epilepsy. As always, we will have time for lively debates and discussions and a special fellows’ forum.

Tampa Bay is the venue for this year’s meeting. It is known for great beaches, parks, boat and bike rides and the Tampa Bay Riverwalk. For kids there is an Aquarium, Zoo, Children’s museum and amusement park. Our hotel has a beautiful view of the bay and was not impacted by hurricane Irma. The special meeting rates for lodging are available for a limited time so I encourage you to sign up now.

I hope you will be able to attend a truly memorable meeting and venue!
