President’s Message


Destination Mobile!


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 on the pathophysiology and treatment of epilepsy. As always, we will have time for lively debates and discussions and a special fellows’ forum.

Mobile Alabama and Mardi Gras are the venue for this year’s meeting. Mobile is the birthplace of Mardi Gras in the United States and our meeting will be held the weekend before Fat Tuesday.  You and your guests will be able to enjoy fantastic parades and pagentry right in front of the meeting hotel. Music, gumbo and crawfish — some of the South’s finest traditions. The special meeting rates for lodging will extend through Fat Tuesday for those of you who are adventurous.

Also, Mobile is only an hour away from some of the finest beaches in the US. Consider staying a few extra days before or after the meeting to see the beautiful Gulf Shores.

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


Dean K. Naritoku, M.D.
President, Southern Epilepsy & EEG Society 2016-2017
Professor and Chair of Neurology, University of South Alabama
