This has been one of the busiest Epilepsy Blog Relays on record. When Living Well With Epilepsy is this busy, it makes me believe that we are heading in the right direction with our efforts to increase epilepsy awareness.
The month kicked off with great posts from bloggers around the country. There were stories on the importance of caregivers, an introduction to Neurish, and advancements in neurology in developing countries.
ASENT and Epilepsy Walk
As the Relay continued, I headed off to a scientific conference in Rockville, MD. I was invited to participate in the American Society for Experimental NeuroTheraputics Annual Meeting. This proved to be a wonderful opportunity to connect with leaders in the fields of Neurology and Neuroscience from Academia, Industry, Government and Advocacy.
Just a week later, I traveled to the Epilepsy Foundation’s National Walk for Epilepsy in Washington, DC. This was an amazing opportunity to speak at the pre-walk rally. It was so much fun to meet new readers and connect with old friends.
Best is yet to come
All these great stories, and in person meetings, has resulted in more readers. That means we are doing our job to increase epilepsy awareness. But, the best is still to come. I am thrilled to announce that tomorrow’s story is contributed by Miguel Cervantes, also known as A.Ham of Hamilton Chicago. He will share his family’s personal struggle with Infantile Spasms.
Then, on March 31, we will close out the Epilepsy Blog Relay with a Twitter Chat as we do each March, June and November. I hope you will join us on March 31 at 7pm ET. Take a moment share a question you would like to cover in the chat.
Our next Epilepsy Blog Relay will take place in June 2017. If you would like to participate as a blogger you can sign up here:Participate as a June Relay Blog
